To sustain the efforts of the Government to make India a clean country by 2019, India@75, a CII Initiative is continuing its efforts of augmenting and promoting the mission for clean India by organizing regular cleaning drives and awareness campaigns pan India.
Swachhta Activitiesduring the annual celebration of the India@75 Week from 8 to 14 August, 75 pan-India Swachhta activities were undertaken in 16 cities across 11 States. These activities were carried out with great zeal, uniting various stakeholders and bringing people from all walks of life together on a single platform to undertake cleaning drives, sapling plantation drives, and aesthetic modification of public walls.
during the Swachhta pakhwada of Ministry of Corporate Affairs, from 16 to 30 June, mass cleaning drives were organized in New delhi, and also in Guwahati and Shillong. Over 2000 volunteers across the country devoted their time and energy to making Swachh Bharat a reality and, in the process, sensitized thousands of
Indians witnessing the event.
The Ministry of youth Affairs & Sports embarked upon a month long Swachhta drive in New delhi in August, culminating in a celebratory event on 1 September. India@75 supported the event wherein more than 500 NSS volunteers took part in a mass Swachh Bharat sensitization and cleaning drive.
Swachh Bharat sensitization drives were organized by India@75 across 22 schools in delhi, Indore and Gwalior on the occasion of Teachers day on 5 September, reaching out to more than 16,000 children and their families.
On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, on 2 October, India@75 organized a mega cyclothon in Varanasi to sensitize the masses on Swachh Bharat. Simultaneously, a cleaning drive was undertaken in and around Banaras Hindu University. The two activities served the dual purpose of educating people about the virtue of cleanliness, while providing them an immediate cause to engage with, with the very tangible and immediate outcome of maintaining the cleanliness of the holy city of Varanasi.

lets play a game, said a Himmotthan Society worker in Garhwali, the native language of Kitth and Kund villages in Tehri Garhwal district, Uttarakhand. He handed out sand in different colors to village leaders, women, and children. Together, they created a map of the village on the ground: white for the houses, pink for the walkways, red to mark houses with no toilets, green to indicate houses that had toilets, and blue for the water sources. Finally, he handed a heap of yellow sand to the village pradhan and asked him to mark all the places where people defecate in the open.
As piles of yellow dust appeared on the map, the Society worker said, Tell me, where does this end up? It was then that the village folk realized the impact of waste on their soil, crop and water sources, and the importance of proper sanitation practices. But the analysis didnt stop there.
The idea of drinking water f rom the i r own village became distasteful as the message of the exercise resonated with them: clearly, potable water is of no use if hygienic sanitation practices are not given a priority.
India houses almost 60% of the global
population that lives without access to toilets and defecates in the open (WHO-UNICEF 2015 Joint Monitoring program). It is estimated that the country will need to build 1542 lakh toilets by 2019 in order to address the nationwide sanitation crisis.
According to a CII and Centre for policy Research report published in 2015, the estimated cost for implementing the Swachh Bharat Mission, both capex (till 2019) and Operation and Maintenance (O&M) expenses for 10 years, is approximately `8.93 lakh crores.
CII and Industry have been actively taking up initiatives to support
the Swachh Bharat Initiative.
In 2014, the CII Foundation (CIIF) launched Mission Sanitation in Schools (SoS) to address the sanitation challenge and support the national agenda of Swachh Bharat. As part of the Miss ion, the Foundation has been undertaking various on-ground
initiatives by engaging companies and communities, both in urban and rural India.

One such CIIF intervention, in partnership with the Himmotthan Society, set up by the Tata Trusts, is the WASH project in Kith and Kund villages in Uttarakhand. The two year project, which began in April 2016 aims to bring potable water and enable 100% sanitation to the water-scarce villages, making them free of open defecation, benefiting around 118 households and 789 individuals.
A similar community-led intervention in 13 villages of Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir will set up systems and processes to develop sustainable health practices, reduce disaster risk, and enable WASH facilities, reaching out to over 11,000 people.
The Foundation has also been engaging companies to construct, operate and maintain toilets in various government schools across the country. The first phase of Mission SoS aimed at evangelizing sanitation in school throughmembercompanies;undertakingmanagementof theconstructionandmaintenanceofschool toilets;collating and sharing innovative practices, designs and technology;andconsolidatingandrecognizingmembercompanies efforts.
CII facilitated the construction of 4193 toilets through corporate engagement and contributions of approximately `90 crores to the Swachh Bharat Kosh. CII also directly undertook the construction of 206 toilet units through the CII Foundation in Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, delhi and Maharashtra.
Along with the construction and O&M of the toilets, the CII Foundation also provided WASH training to the students and teachers of intervened government schools in Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, and Tamil Nadu. Committee members, comprising of teachers, have been constituted to oversee the day-to-day cleanliness of the toilets.
To meet the open defecation challenges in urban areas, the Foundation launched the second phase of Mission SoS to construct public and community toilets by engaging with community, industry and Urban local Bodies. Five companies, Mitsubishi, dCM, Mahindra & Mahindra, JK Tyres and JCB, joined hands with the CIIF for the construction of 15 public toilet blocks in delhi. The CIIF is also working with the Indian R
