Role DM/Collectors can play in Swachh Bharat

Recently, a district magistrate held the salary of a municipal commissioner and several other officials after it was found that they had failed to resolve grievances of residents posted online.

Some district magistrates are also playing a key role in driving the implementation of Swachh Bharat and making their district clean.

With this post, we would like to seek your inputs on what are the 5 key things every District Magistrate must do to make Swachh Bharat successful in their district.

We look forward to your inputs!

Generally it's very pathetic & unhygienic the conditions that one can experience with stink & filth all around & inside fruits & vegetables market including the flowers market too. If the spoilt & discarded matters are segregated & disposed off to be dumped in a compost unit, it can turn out to be useful organic manure (of course chemical inflicted fruits, vegetables, flowers & stalks can stop us considering as organic). I feel when every individual, at buying & selling source get responsible, Swacch Bharat Andolan can be successful. more  
1 They should keep strong check on the progress of the scheme and take action against the local body officials. 2. Ask the SDMs and Tehsildars to give him regular feedback of the progress. 3. they should help in promoting and spreading the details of the scheme in their areas. 4. Hold frequent periodical meetings to assess the progress. more  
DM being the CEO of the district he/she is accountable for all Govt inititaives. It is assumed that DM takes all necessary steps to ensure that Govt. initiatives are all implemented according to the plan. It is difficult for him to find aberrations, if any, happening within the system since the area is vast. The best way out for him is to publish in local news paper that any complaints if not sorted out within a reasonable time period can approach him directly. Any one approaching with such complaints will be religiously followed and all culprits will be identified and punished that will invariably affect their career. This must be done within a specified days. This will bring in visible change. Thanks more  
District Magistrate is the key person who can drive the swachh bharat mission ahead. 1. regular monthly review of the progress. Swachh bharat should be one of the agenda in all the review meeting 2. surprise visit by DM / or his representative to check the field reality 3. imposing of fine for the defaulters. ( those who are dumping garbage on the road and for the pet dog owners who is littering with dog shit) 4. selection of honorary two or three supervisor from the community to monitor and supervise the cleanliness of their area 5. help line for lodging complain more  
The attitude of the District Magistrate (DM) is vital for the success of the programme.He should impress upon the Municipal Commissioners to frequently interact with the ward councillors to ensure that all localities of the town or city implement the programme.Currently, the Councillors are not taking any interest in the programme. 2) The National Service Scheme (NSS) has been working perfunctorily.The DM should co-ordinate with the DEO and College authorities to ensure that students take an active part in it for implementing Swatch Bharat Programme as well as for teaching ordinary people how to go about doing cashless transactions using e-wallets and plastic money. 3) DMs should carry out surprise checks of localities to see if the Municipal staff are attending to garbage clearing and sweeping activities. 4) DMs should encourage the formation of locality wise committees which themselves oversee the implementation Swatch Bharat programme in their localities. 5) DMs should co-ordinate with the police department to see if offenders can be penalised. more
