  accelerate the efforts to achieve universal sanitation coverage and to put the focus on sanitation, the Prime Minister of India had launched the Swachh Bharat Mission on 2nd October 2014. Under the mission, all villages, Gram Panchayats, Districts, States and Union Territories in India declared themselves "open-defecation free" (ODF) by 2 October 2019, the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, by constructing over 100 million toilets in rural India. To ensure that the open defecation free behaviours are sustained, no one is left behind, and that solid and liquid waste management facilities are accessible, the Mission is moving towards the next Phase II of SBMG i.e ODF-Plus. ODF Plus activities under Phase II of Swachh Bharat Mission (Grameen) will reinforce ODF behaviours and focus on providing interventions for the safe management of solid and liquid waste in villages.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan set a lot of objectives to achieve so that India could become cleaner and better. In addition, it not only appealed the sweepers and workers but all the citizens of the country. This helped in making the message reach wider. It aims to build sanitary facilities for all households.

Essay on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (स्वच्छ भारत अभियान): Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a campaign launched by our Hon’ble Prime Minister to highlight the importance of cleanliness in the surroundings. It was inaugurated on 2nd October 2014 to honour the vision of cleanliness of Mahatma Gandhi.

government. World Bank also provided some financial assistance for the successful implementation of the campaign.

The success of the mission resulted in reduced death & lethal disease rates and annual benefits of Rs. 50,000 per household in rural areas. Clean India attracted many tourists worldwide and ultimately enhanced the GDP and economy of the nation with an increase in the number of employment sources.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a great accomplishment and proved out to a one of a kind project in the history of India. We must carry forward the practices of cleanliness with the same enthusiasm and zeal and help each other by keeping our Mother India clean and beautiful.

the motive behind the drive. Lakhs of people suffer from malignant diseases caused due to improper sanitation and hygiene. The campaign primarily focuses on eradicating the unhealthy practices of open defecation and provide basic sanitation facilities by constructing toilets, solid-liquid waste disposal systems, supplying clean drinking water, etc. It aims at covering around 4041 statutory towns and cities across the country for cleaner streets, roads, towns, and public infrastructure. The mission asked to devote 100 hours annually towards the cleanliness drive.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a reminder for the citizens of the nation to respect nature and not stain its beauty. Also, it is the sole duty of each and every citizen to keep the surroundings clean and green. Alone we can only think, together we can bring change. It is the collective effort that counts in the end. Cursing the government every time and not doing anything for the same will not yield any results. The mission must be a combined endeavour of the people and its government.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan consists of two components and is run under two different departments.

  1. Ministry of Home and Urban Affairs, which monitors the cleanliness drive in the urban parts of the country. The project is called Swachh Bharat Mission- Urban.
  2. Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, which oversees sanitation coverage in rural areas. The project is called Swachh Bharat Mission- Gramin.

PM Narendra Modi received the Global Goalkeeper award from Gates Foundation for his efforts towards Swachh Bharat Abhiyan to make India a cleaner country. He was presented with the award on 25th Sept 2019 in New York
