Indian film actor Amitabh Bachchan donated a large sewer cleaning machine to MCGM and 20 small ones to Aurangabad to end the manual scavanging practices. This follows his commitment at the 2018 Cleanathon toward taking steps in this direction. He also plans to donate a couple more smaller sewer cleaning machines to Mumbai and Pune.
