To accelerate the efforts to achieve universal sanitation coverage and to put focus on sanitation, the Prime Minister of India launched the “Swachh Bharat Mission” on 2nd October, 2014 which replaces the erstwhile Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (Total Sanitation Campaign). Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin) aims to achieve Clean India by 2019, as a fitting tribute to the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. This Mission aims at  improving the level of cleanliness in rural areas through Solid and Liquid Waste Management activities and making Gram Panchayats/ villages Open Defecation Free (ODF), clean and sanitary. The department has verified 677 villages as Open Defecation Free (ODF) villages as per the declaration made by the Village Council and department Verification team report.
