Building Cleanliness into Housing Design and Construction
Many of you have raised concerns about lack of cleanliness in your societies and colonies and the fact that it is no one's concerns.
Ministry of Urban Development is working on the Smart City initiative and we would like to seek inputs on what could be done during design, development and construction of housing societies/colonies so it is easier to maintain them.
We look forward to your inputs!

houses are constructed similarly there must be innovative provisions for at
least storing the waste till its transportation to the next stage in
management . Most houses are too small for keeping multiple bins . The bins
are also expensive . Poor households start using the bins for inneumerable
more pressing purposes. Fixed bins -might be below ground surface wouldbe a
wonderful idea. more
1. To segregate the areas based on the streets, colonies, nagars etc.. which ever if feasible and one volunteer must be fixed for each and every such identified locations. If any area is left without volunteer we need not worry about the same in the initial instant and on a long run looking at the cleanliness of the areas where volunteers are posted the non-volunteer areas will automatically come to work together.
2. A proper area must be identified to dump the debris collected from the households of the identified areas. This has to be finalised in coordination with the district administration under the direction of the district collector. The final level of disposal / utilisation of the debris collected must be planned at the initial stage itself.
3. The sweepers appointed for the purpose of debris removal by the panchayats must be told to get the signature of the volunteer person on a daily basis or once in two days depending on the amount of debris collected and the man power availability.
4. The monthly salary of the sweepers team must be proportionately shared by the panchayat/municipality and the residents of the particular locality which should not exceed Rs. 100/- per house hold in villages and 200/- per household in urban.
5. If the signature of the volunteer is not being obtained by the sweeping person then the person responsible for the sweepers must interact with the volunteer and the sweeper to find out the real problem and record the same. The recorded problem must be highlighted to the next level to obtain a solution either to change the volunteer or to penalise the sweeper who ever is found to be mistaken.
This may not be a right procedure and may need lot of changes before execution. but instead of finding faults with one another it is better to discuss the ways and means of achieving the target of clean India through brain storming to find out right procedure as early as possible and the same has to be implemented. Be in action to find out result. more
