CHANDIGARH: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has approved the setting up of State Mission Directorate headed by Director, Urban Local Bodies, for enabling speedy and effective implementation of the Swachh Bharat Mission in urban areas of the state. Under the mission, cleanliness is to be ensured by the year 2019 as envisaged by PM Narendra Modi.

A Project Management Unit would also be set up under the mission.  The CM also approved the constitution of a state-level high powered committee under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary. The Committee would be responsible for the management of the mission at the level of the Urban Local Bodies. The state government would send a monthly progress report or quarterly progress report with regard to targets and achievements.

Given the scale of the mission, a comprehensive and robust IT-enabled Management Information System (MIS) will be established for tracking of targets and achievements so that they could send the progress report online. He said that under the campaign household toilets, community toilets and public toilets would be constructed, besides setting up solid waste management projects.  The projects will be implemented involving substantial private sector investments, contribution from beneficiaries and Government incentives or support for viability gap funding. He said the implementation of the mission would be thoroughly monitored to achieve the objectives under it.
