The objective of the survey is to encourage large scale citizen participation and create awareness amongst all sections of society about the importance of working together towards making towns and cities a better place to live in.
During a programme, these institutions will be felicitated for their contribution to the cleanliness drive under Swachh Navi Mumbai Mission’s Swachhata Competition being held over the last few months. It will overall focus on cleanliness awareness via dramatic and musical representations by various groups from Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.
The groups will underline no plastic use, segregation of kitchen waste, zero garbage, and composting.
According to NMMC’s deputy municipal commissioner Tushar Pawar, they have invited a citizens’ group, Swachh Kharghar Foundation (SKF) which had arranged a programme last month in Kharghar’ Central Park, “along with PCMC and Cidco to spread message of cleanliness, protection of environment and ill-effects of global warming to perform at our prize distribution show”.
“The assembly will learn how to maintain a clean society through a medley of dance, drama, songs and music,” Pawar added.
Constituted by the Maharashtra Government in 1991, the NMMC is meant to cater to the needs of 29 villages in CIDCO Navi Mumbai project. The local self-government commenced functioning from 1992.
It must be mentioned that NMMC administers an area of 162 square km. It operates public bus transport services in areas under its jurisdiction.
