Nagar Panchayat Patan attained the status of being the cleanest city in the country in less than 25 thousand population category. Similarly, Jashpur and Dhamtari won the award under the categories of towns with a population of 25 to 50 thousand and of 50 thousand to 1 lakh respectively. Ambikapur retained the status of being the cleanest city in the population range of 1 to 10 lakh.

According to the release, the Chhattisgarh government has set forth to fulfill its promise of providing landholding rights to the landless urban population through legislation, under which, the people who had been in possession of the land parcel prior to November 19, 2018, are being given land ownership rights.

Through this landmark decision, more than two lakh underprivileged urban families of the state will be benefited directly. Moreover, under the ‘Mor Zameen-MorMakaan scheme’, they shall also be entitled to receive direct financial assistance up to 2.5 lakhs for fulfilling their dreams of becoming a ‘pucca’ house owner. Representation for the Divyangjan To provide adequate representation to the Divyangjan, the Chhattisgarh government changed their Municipal acts of 1956 and 1961 and made sure that this vulnerable section of the society gets its voice in the third tier of the Government through reservations for the posts of Aldermen in the ULBs, the release said.

Boost to beneficiary led Urban Housing Since the inception of the PMAY (Urban) in June 2015 to the formation of the new Government in the State in December 2018, only 8,000 Dwelling Units were completed.

The State then changed its strategy focusing on providing direct financial assistance to the Urban Poor instead of the age-old contractor-based model. With this paradigm shift, more than 80,000 Dwelling Units have been successfully completed till date, the release said.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
