A pro­gramme will soon be or­gan­ised by the NMMC to present the awards and cer­tifi­cates to the win­ners.

Son­awane said, “The NMMC will take ini­tia­tive to en­sure there is in­creased par­tic­i­pa­tion and all gov­ern­ment of­fices con­trib­ute to­ward clean­li­ness and hy­giene in the city. We will pay spe­cial at­ten­tion to ar­eas where there are prob­lems.”

Ajayku­mar Landge, se­nior police in­spec­tor of Vashi police sta­tion, is elated.

“We are hon­oured at get­ting the recog­ni­tion. This has hap­pened due to the spe­cial ef­forts of all of­fi­cers and per­son­nel at the police sta­tion and the guid­ance of our seniors,” said Landge.

He added, “We have laid spe­cial stress on hy­giene and clean­li­ness on our premises so that the res­i­dents who come here get pos­i­tive vibes and feel re­laxed in a com­fort­ing and hy­gienic en­vi­ron­ment.”
