State govt buildings to be assessed on cleanliness
The Union Urban Development Ministry has asked states to conduct cleaning drives in the office buildings at the state headquarters and conduct an assessment exercise on cleanliness between March 16 and 21.
As part of the drive, the Ministry has reached out to all other Central ministries to conduct cleanliness drives in their respective office buildings. The Central Public Works Department (CPWD) has been asked to carry out an assessment exercise on cleanliness for all government buildings in the National Capital Region (NCR).
“The Swachh Bharat Mission in order to become a Jan Andolan requires concerted efforts from each stakeholder, to make it a collective dream. Government officials are the face of public service in the country, and it is our duty to lead the Clean India movement by example,” Swachh Bharat Mission Director Praveen Prakash said.
Urban Local Bodies have been asked to conduct similar drives and ratings for their respective office buildings in the cities.
