As part of Swachh Bharat Mission, Swachhta Pakhwada is underway by various units of Andaman & Nicobar Command from December 1 onwards. The objective is to focus on the issues and practices of Swachhta by engaging and involving everyone. The activities being undertaken to promote cleanliness include beach cleaning, cleaning of surroundings and educating families on importance of cleanliness in our daily lives. A beach cleaning drive was undertaken on December 5 and 6 by Army component at Birchgunj. Emphasis was laid on improving cleanliness standards in the cantonment area including married accommodations, play grounds, office complexes and cook houses. To inculcate cleanliness awareness among the masses, Segregated Waste Management Centre, Birchgunj has been organising waste management workshops for families of all ranks to promote Swachhta as a way of life among the younger generation. These initiatives are aimed at realising the dream of ‘Clean India and Green India’.
