    Great Initiative. Please show a live counter on the Channel and website and give name of donor as the amount adds up. This will make people more enthusiastic towards giving. Hope you cross 1000 crores.
    Railways have a key role in keeping India clean. Railway washrooms are dirtiest and need to be subcontracted to advertisers to keep them clean. Also please no toilets on platforms but near the entry/exit only as they always stink and overflow.

    One of the smalledt contribution every family can make – Instead of selling the newspapers as “raddi”, make paper bags which the fruit / vegetable vendors can use instead of plastic bags.
    Need to promote and show easy way to make a paper bag from a newspaper.

    Its a really challenge to provide hygienic space in “India” for a common man who are still out of improvement or living in dark (Mainly for ladies)
    Initiative by Deetol NDTV “Banega swachh India” should be reached to every corner all over we hope. Definitely it will improve mindset and behavior of a large population to think clean ….
    I salute …Jai Ho
