Ahead of Swachhta test preparations have started in full swing. The officials of the Jaipur Municipal Corporation are getting in touch with people from different fields. They reached out to restaurants, school, and college authorities, truck drivers, workers of private offices.
They held a meeting with many school representatives and asked them to take the responsibility to promote the cleanliness of the school and around schools. They urged them to teach students about cleanliness and organize different activities for spreading the message.
A workshop was held in JMC to promote the participation of people in the cleanliness survey and promoting the message of cleanliness. The message will reach 60 thousand people every day. In this, Commissioner Vijay Pal Singh asked the hotel and restaurant operators to decorate their properties on the theme of the clean survey so that more people join the campaign.
The JMC introduced six types of stickers to promote cleanliness. The owners of the restaurants and hotels will be given these stickers. During a meeting, the representatives of hotels and restaurants were requested to use the stickers. They were asked to paste these stickers on their delivery packagings and also at their restaurants and hotels.
According to a senior JMC official, this will create branding for swachhta. These efforts are done to improve and earn better rankings in Swachhta Survekshan 2020.
Citizens would also have to show awareness towards the city cleanliness survey 2020. To enhance the cleanliness in the city, citizens were asked to use the Swachhta MoHUA app more and more. So far the residents of the city are not serious about using this app. At least one and a half lakh citizens should download this app on their mobile and use it on a regular basis.
Last year the pink city could not reach up to the top rank in the priority list of cleanest cities due to negligence towards cleanliness. This time the survey has been increased to 1000 points to 6000. In such a situation, along with fixing the arrangements becomes necessary.
In 2018, Jaipur scored 39th position in all India swachhta ranking, but it dropped down by five positions to 44th rank in 2019.
