No ‘swachh bharat’ in J&K

Jammu and Kashmir is yet to complete a survey under Swachh Bharat mission to identify individual households without toilets in the cities, prompting Governor N.N. Vohra to pull up the administration. Vohra has given 9 March deadline to the state’s Chief Secretary to identify the individual households which do not have toilets in the urban areas. The officials told the governor the Centre provides an incentive of Rs 4000 per individual household to build toilets in urban areas. Vohra asked the state administration to galvanise support from major industrial houses, universities, banks and central public sector undertakings working in J&K to make Swachh Bharat mission a success.
