Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation which is aiming at a top-rank in Government of India’s Swachh Bharath Mission has taken up rigorous steps to secure a place.
Dr. B. Janardhan Reddy, Commissioner, GHMC has launched a movement with the motto “Unite Families and Separate Waste” reinforcing the strength of citizens, officials and workers to give fillip to the cause.
Emphasis of the civic body has been on educating the masses on importance of segregation of wastes at household level and also to the waste collectors. As part of the campaign, GHMC has already distributed two bins to each household in the city to collect the dry and wet waste separately.
In this connection, Mr. Reddy held a review meeting with the medical officers, zonal and deputy commissioners of GHMC directing them to do self-assessment of their own circles on weekly basis in order to find weak points and improvise.
GHMC also involved the Hyderabad City Police in a big way for enforcement of the cleanliness drive clearing the road encroachments, defacement of public spaces that are affecting the general cleanliness of the city.
As part of Swachh Survekshan 2017, the Quality Council of India (QCI) is scheduled to deploy its assessment team to the City in the first week of February 2017.
