The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, launched on 02.10.2014 across the country as a National Movement, is the most
significant cleanliness campaign by the Government of India. According to the Government, a clean India would be the best tribute India could pay to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary in 2019. By inviting people to participate in the drive, the Swachhta Abhiyan has turned into a National Movement. A sense of responsibility has been evoked among the people through the Clean India Movement. With this, citizens are now becoming active participants in cleanliness activities across the nation, the dream of a ‘Clean India’ once seen by Mahatma Gandhi has begun to get a shape.
Swachhta Pakhwada started in April 2016 with the objective of bringing a fortnight of intense focus on the issues and practices of Swachhta. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is one of the most significant and popular missions to have taken place in India. It translates to Clean India Mission.
