Swachh Bharat Abhiyan :Clean India Mission

Indian Government Scheme: Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a national sanitation campaign by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, covering 4041 statutory towns, to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country.
The Swachh Bharat movement was established to address sanitation and waste management issues in India by promoting sanitation throughout   India.

The scheme is based on the concept of rural development of Mahatma Gandhi which revolved around creating model villages for transforming swaraj (self rule) into su-raj (good governance).

The objective is to create a holistic development of all adopted villages by the MPs in all aspects – human, personal, social, economic and environmental development, including provision of basic amenities, services, security and good governance. 

In his 2014 Independence Day speech, PM modi emphasized “Clean India” and said the movement was related to India’s economic activity.
The main purpose of this campaign is to create sanitation facilities for all. It aims
to provide all rural households with a toilet by 2019.

The First Clean Drive Started 25 September 2014.
The clean-up campaign, just before the official launch of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, was held from the 25th
Sep to 23 Oct in all offices up to the level of panchayat.
As part of the awareness campaign, the Delhi Government also covered more than eight lakh ration card holders by sending SMS to their mobile numbers.

The campaign officially started on 2 October 2014 in Rajghat, New Delhi, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi paved the way himself.

India’s largest clean campaign with 3 million civil servants and high school and college students participating.
Prime Minister Modi, who nominated 9 celebrities for the campaign, started the mission, and they were challenged to name 9 more (like a tree branch) and so on.
