indeed Swachh Bharat"s motive have very well reached the people and the necessity to keep clean the street, surroundings etc is felt by people. But still we have to educate our poeple to reach 100% cleaning of our cities. Swachh Bharat squad to be formed and visit the cities and to send report where more concentration is required for cleaning work and steps to take cleaning the area by municipal authorities and people of this are. more  
I hope one is able to witness a clean India soon. Whenever one travels overseas the stark cleanliness in those countries hits you and makes one squirm thinking about the filth back at home. Filth not only in terms of heaps of garbage, overflowing or clogged drains and nallahas, bunches and bunches of overhead electricity wires but also old unkempt un-smart and badly maintained houses and buildings, pot-holes roads, dirty buses etc etc. The list is endless. Europe/Japan/Middle East/US/South East/China (Inspite of the huge population) on the other hand are all very clean countries in several respects. There is so much discipline and awareness among the civilians that they ensure that the surroundings and environment remains clean. It is surprising that as Indians, whose culture suggest cleanliness, we have no qualms of living in a filthy country. Positive energy that brings in prosperity will flow only in clean environments. One will notice that the clean countries are prosperous and rich. Filthy or dirty countries have negative energy flowing and this makes large sections of the country to live in poverty with the minds of people too thinking negatively. I happened to visit Vrindavan recently (after the Swach Bharat Abhiyan). This abhiyan does not seem to have touched this holy city. How can we expect positive energy flowing from a city steeped in filth, muck and dirt. The place should be cleaned up immediately. What impressions foreigners carry back, I shudder to think. A suggestion that I have - Introduce the subject of cleanliness and civic sense - in all its various dimensions - in the school curriculum (It used to be there earlier). This should be taught right upto the 12th standard and should be a marked paper. This will help inculcate the habit of cleanliness in a 360 degree manner in the DNA of the children who will eventually grow into adults. And as they grow into adults we will gradually see a population that is not only clamouring for cleanliness but has clean habits and will ensure cleanliness. These individuals will take up the responsibility for ensuring that cleanliness in the society in which they live and grow. Our policy makers and educationists must envision the society that we need to build in future India and designing and impart training and education accordingly. Every country that is serious about developing is working in this manner. more  
The Biggest and the Best positive effect is that individuals who wanted their country to be clean but could not do much about the unclean habits of fellow citizens have now gathered the courage to confront and ask the unclean/litterers citizens to adopt cleanliness in the light of Swachh Bharat Mission. As an Individual i was earlier reserved on opening up my views on cleanliness and had to bury the misery of the unclean ways of Family, Friends, fellow citizens, after this mission was announced i have caught the litterers and the unclean people red handed and asked them to adopt Swachh Bharat Mission strictly and it was not fair to litter this way when the whole country wanted to clean itself, ofcourse most of the times I was abused and asked to mind my own business, atleast i gathered the courage to confront, which was never possible before this mission. not only me, I know many people who have gathered the courage in this wake and are making (though very minute) a difference in their every day life. more  
staff are to be made more responsible. Better to give cleaning job on outsourcing and work will smoothly done govt staff have become arraogant because they can not be removed. Job security is big evil health inspectorand above all are to be accountable more  
In Fact MC's that too of BJP at least should take a step forward, either they are not doing any work at all or if doing, it's only on papers. In fact Common public can expect honest implementation in wards where BJP Councillors are there more
