A total of 1.9 crore citizens across 4,242 cities of the country participated in the survey. During 2019-20, the city civic body’s earnings from the processing of wet and dry garbage increased by 50 per cent to nearly Rs. 6 crore, said Asad Warsi, the Centre’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’s adviser for Indore Municipal Corporation.

In FY 2018-19, the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) had generated about Rs. 4 crore from garbage processing. Mr Warsi said the IMC has set up an automated processing plant equipped with artificial intelligence for dry waste. Through this plant, materials like glass, plastic, paper, cardboard, metal are segregated. The civic body is producing bio-CNG and compost by processing the wet waste, he said. For the processing of wet waste, IMC is setting up a new 500 tonne capacity bio-CNG plant in Devguradiya area on Public Private Partnership (PPP) basis, he said. A private company will invest around Rs. 250 crore in the new plant, while the civic body will have to provide land for the unit, he said. According to the agreement, the private company will pay a premium of Rs. 1 crore every year to IMC out of the income from processing wet waste.

We expect IMC’s earnings to grow up to nearly Rs. 10crore in 2021-22 from the processing of garbage, Mr Warsi said.

The civic body has developed the ability to safely dispose about 1,200 tonnes of waste every day in different ways. This includes 550 tonnes of wet waste and 650 tonnes of dry waste, officials said.

Talking to PTI, IMC Commissioner Pratibha Pal said,

We are confident that with the help of our hard working sanitary workers, aware citizens and public representatives of Indore, we will secure first place in the cleanliness survey for the fourth consecutive time and our slogan of hitting a four in terms of cleanliness will turn out to be true.

Indore’s estimated population is nearly 35 lakh.

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
