Bhopal: The efforts made in the direction of Urban Swachh Bharat Mission in Madhya Pradesh have started bearing fruit. As per cleanliness standards, 361 urban bodies have been certified as Open Defecation Free (ODF) cities by the Quality Council of India. Including this, all 378 urban bodies have been declared Open Defecation Free.

According to Year 2011 Census, nearly more than 7 lakh 31 thousand families have been marked as being without toilets. After survey of all urban areas, 6 lakh 18 thousand personal toilets have been approved. So far nearly 4 lakh 80 thousand toilets have been constructed. A target of construction of nearly 2 lakh toilets has been set this fiscal year. In the mission period, target of nearly 40 thousand seats public/community toilets has been set. Out of these 12 thousand 223 seats have been constructed.

It may be noted that for the fulfillment of target of Urban Swachh Bharat Mission for personal toilets, the centre is providing Rs 39 thousand 200 per seat, 35 percent for solid waste management and 15 percent for transmission of information education.
Solid Waste Management by PPP

Integrated Solid Waste Management is being done through public participation by constituting 26 groups of all 378 urban bodies of the state. Out of these 26 group based schemes, a target of nearly 72 MW power production has been set by installing power production plant out of waste from 22 units of Ratlam group, 28 units of Rewa group, 15 units of Gwalior, 8 units of Indore and 8 units of Bhopal group. The implementation of all 26 schemes would be completed by March 2019.
State government has made provision of 20 percent grant to bodies, 30 percent fund if necessary for loans on 5 per cent interest, Rs 6,880 to beneficiary for personal toilets and grant of Rs 32,500 per seat to the body for community/public toilets for the successful implementation of the scheme and solid waste management with their own sources.

The state has set its target under the mission and has prepared strategy for its fulfillment. Work is being done on the basis of the five pillars of “Samagra Swachhata” – simplicity, transparency, continuity, sustainability and public awareness.-Windowtonews
