Addl Inputs: Supply Chain Capacity for SBM

Below are some of the solutions and issues identified by you related to Supply Chain capacity for Swachh Bharat Mission. Kindly review and share any additional specific solutions that will help increase supply chain capacity for the mission.

Increasing Supply Chain Capacity for Swachh Bharat - Solutions

1. All Swachh Bharat related products (toilet pans, dustbins, cleaning equipment, tanks, etc) where there is a supply-demand mismatch should be exempt from duties 100% so they can be imported from foreign countries
2. More outcome based interaction should be organized between Swachh Bharat Mission and associated manufacturing industr
3. The on-ground implementation capacity of the Central Government should be increased in proportion to the planning done
4. India should tie up with other countries who have been champions at recycling and waste management
5. A line of experts should be developed who could help in implementation of Swachh Bharat initiatives across the country
6. Training programs should be organized for civic bodies to pass on the required skills to make SBM successful
7. Processes should be set for daily activities by the local civic bodies for effective implementation of SBM
8. The tendering process should be completely automated
9. Human interaction in the tendering process should be minimized
10. It should be made sure that the municipal employees report to office daily. This could be done through biometric attendance
11. Once the conceptual supply chains are prepared for each segment, then customisation of supply chain should be done
12. Responsibility for Outcomes should be clearly defined and the Ward Officer or Gram Panchayat Head, are best suited for this at the operating level.

Supply Chain Capacity for SBM - Key Issues

1. There is a big disconnect between Central Government planning and the manufacturing, implementation capacity on the ground.
2. Focused capacity building program is missing on manufacturing/ramp up of toilets, dustbins, other waste management equipment etc.
3. For many waste management and recycling programs, India does not have the expertise and needs international collaborations
4. Focused effort on Skilling Civic Bodies for Swachh Bharat is needed and is missing
5. Process and Systems are missing from most civic bodies in India and key for effective implementation
6. Supply Chain optimization model is missing, so process, people and raw material all comes together under manufacturing and services supply chain for Swachh Bharat
7. Effective and transparent tendering process is missing at Civic Body levels
8. Corrupt practices exist in almost all tendering done at civic bodies.
9. Tracking systems are missing to track the municipal workers and their day to day delivery
10. Swachh Bharat Mission is not playing the direct role of an enabler for manufacturing and service supply chain of Swachh Bharat. more

Let the Government take steps for proper implementation more  
Schools must be made to educate students in keeping cleanliness all around. This will help in initiating the change at all levels. Dr. G.L. Moondra's suggestions may please be reconsidered in this regard. Import of equipment should strictly be only for those items which are NOT available in India and/or cannot be made available from indigenous resources in good time. more
