Take part in national cleanliness survey
CBD BELAPUR: How clean do you think your city is? Now you can give feedback to the Central government about sanitation, solid waste management and toilets in your city.
The central government has initiated ‘Swachh Sarvekshan’, a ranking survey under the Swachh Bharat Mission.
The survey has been commissioned by the ministry of urban development and is being conducted by the Quality Council of India (QCI), to assess the sanitation and hygiene conditions of 75 major cities, including 53 cities with a population of above 10 lakh each, and state capitals.
The survey will also assess work done on constructing household toilets and community toilet seats.
The survey agencies will collect necessary data from urban local bodies through direct observation, citizen feedback via questionnaires and automated telephonic questionnaire on a national toll-free number.
Citizens can submit their feedback by giving a missed call on 1800 267 2777.
Municipal commissioner Dinesh Waghmare said, “Once a missed call is given on the number, the caller will get a return call. He can choose between Hindi and English as the language of his choice. Once that is selected, the local pin code number has to be fed in.”
He added, “The caller will then be asked questions related to his city’s sanitation, solid waste management and toilets. He will have to rank them as 1, 2, or 3.”
Waghmare said, “The tollfree number will be active till January 15, 2016. The ranking survey will conclude on January 20.”
He said, “The results will be announced on the My Gov website on January 25.”
Mayor Sudhakar Sonawane said, “Swachh Sarvekshan is an important tool for the citizens to share feedback on cleanliness drives organised in their regions.”
