Municipality-Community local connectivity
Expanding from the current 45 local Swachh Bharat circles at constituency/city level, we hope to have a Swachh Bharat circle for many more urban constituencies of India in the coming months.
Once that is accomplished, we would like to invite the respective urban local bodies to their respective Swachh Bharat circles.
Kindly advise if your local community and your civic body were in the same circle, how can problems be raised and addressed effectively without overwhelming the civic bodies.
We know the challenges in this process will be many, ranging from connectivity, IT trained personnel, understanding of English, ability to respond etc. We also want your views on how this can be implemented effectively with Ministry of Urban Development, the local Swachh Bharat Circle member community and the local civic body all playing a role.
The idea really is that Citizens can report common areas with garbage/cleanliness/waste management issues, the civic bodies come to know and address it and the community holds them accountable while assisting them where possible.
We look forward to your thoughts!
Ministry of Urban Development more
