Govt to launch Swachhata Janaadesh Survekshan ’23

Tuesday, 19 September 2023 | PNS | Lucknow

On Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary, the Yogi government is launching the ‘Swachhata Janaadesh Survekshan 2023’ in all municipal corporations, municipalities and nagar panchayats, scheduled to continue till October 2.
The Urban Development department will conduct the survey under the Swachh Bharat Mission, in which the councillors of all the civic bodies will answer questions related to cleanliness in their wards and also give their suggestions.
While launching this campaign Urban Development Minister AK Sharma said that making Uttar Pradesh one of the cleanest states was among the priorities of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
“The government was making efforts to maintain cleanliness across the state through these programs,” he said.
He said that about 14,000 councilors from the urban bodies would participate in the 15-day survey and share their response digitally regarding the cleanliness work being done in their wards, the status of cleanliness and numerous other cleanliness programmes.
Additionally, the Urban Development department has generated a QR code that councillors can scan in order to provide the department with insights about their respective wards by responding to 20 questions on a dedicated web page.
In addition to these queries, councillors are also requested to share details about their initiatives to maintain a clean ward. Moreover, their input and suggestions for enhancing the effectiveness and success of the cleanliness campaign will be actively sought.
Principal Secretary of Urban Development, Amrit Abhijat said that to achieve the goals of the Swachh Bharat Mission and creating garbage-free cities, it was necessary to implement the  ‘Swachhata Janaadesh Survekshan 2023’ in every urban body of the state.
“Between September 18 and October 2, the state government will provide recommendations related to urban bodies via the ‘Swachhata Janaadesh Survekshan 2023’ initiative to municipal corporations, municipal councils, nagar panchayats, and their respective wards,” he said.
He said that councillors had been directed to engage in self-assessment regarding cleanliness standards based on 20 specific criteria. The program would utilise dedicated bar codes for this purpose.
The 20 questions to which the councillors have to respond include issues related to cleanliness along with general questions like their district, municipal body, ward, and ward number. In this, questions have been asked related to the daily operation of the garbage cart in the ward, segregation of wet and dry garbage, door-to-door garbage collection and operation of garbage vans.
Similarly, information has also been sought regarding cleanliness programs in the ward, daily cleaning of wards, availability of dustbins, timely cleaning of dustbins as well as cleaning of drains and ponds.
Additionally, information has also been sought on important topics like a ban on plastic and polythene in the ward and presence of heaps of garbage at various places. They have been asked whether they have ever used the toll-free numbers 1533 and 18001800101 to lodge a complaint related to cleanliness or not.
