State govts’ buildings to be assessed on cleanliness


New Delhi, March 5: 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 March 21.

As part of the drive, Ministry has reached out to all other Central ministries to conduct cleanliness drives in their 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 NCR region.

“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.

The assessment parameters will focus on adequacy and cleanliness of urinals installed, the number of functional wash basins, the state of litter and betel stains, and the number of dustbins available for use, among others.

The result of the assessment of these office buildings in the states and cities will be announced on March 22.
