We need to know what is the actual plans on the ground ....

All the hype & rheotoric is great .. but we have seen a lot of ribbon-cutting with no further action before.

With Mr. Modi, we hope that will change .. please prove our hopes are right this time.

We need to know what is the actual plans on the ground .... more  

Sir, then what do you expect any simple citizen in Delhi to do on the ground as a direct positive action ? At present, this circle seems to be just a morale boosting exercise to your announcement about an over - 12 Billion Dollar expenditure through the already-known-and-generally-corrupt town/village councils ! more

Mr. Das,

A week before the nationwide launch of complete cleanliness and sanitation drive, Cabinet on Wednesday cleared the plan for Swachh Bharat Mission that will cover all rural and urban areas.

While the urban development ministry will be the nodal agency responsible for monitoring and supervision of the mission in across all the 4,041 statutory towns, the drinking water and sanitation ministry will have the same responsibility for rural areas. The mission has been divided into two sub categories - gramin (rural) and urban.

The Swachh Bharat Mission for urban areas is proposed to be implemented over five years starting from October 2 and the total expected cost of the programme is Rs 62,000 crore. While Centre will provide Rs 14,623 crore assistance the rest will come from states, private players and other sources.

Budgetary provisions for the two sub-missions will be provided separately in the demand for grant of the drinking water and sanitation (for gramin) and urban development ministry (for urban).

"The programme includes elimination of open defecation, conversion of insanitary toilets to pour flush toilets, eradication of manual scavenging, municipal solid waste management, bringing about a behavioural change in people regarding healthy sanitation practices, generating awareness among citizens about sanitation and its linkages with public health, strengthening of urban local bodies to design, execute and operate systems to fulfill these objectives and creating an enabling environment for private sector participation in capital expenditure and operational expenditure," an official statement said.

It would cover 1.04 crore households, provide 2.5 lakh seats of community toilets, 2.6 lakh seats of public toilets and solid waste management facility for all towns. Community toilets will be proposed in residential areas, where it is difficult to construct individual household toilets, public toilets will be constructed in designated locations such as tourist places, markets, bus stations, near railway stations and places of public recreation wherever required.

For rural household, the Cabinet decided to increase the unit cost of individual household latrine from Rs 10,000 to Rs 12,000 so as to provide for water availability, including for storing, hand-washing and cleaning of toilets. Central share for such latrines will be Rs 9,000 while state share will be Rs 3,000. For North Eastern states, Jammu & Kashmir and special category states, the Central share will be 10,800 and the state share Rs 1,200. Additional contributions from other sources will be permitted.

Considering the bigger role of education and communication to bring behaviour change 8% percent of total project cost will be directed for this purpose. more
