‘Clean India’ Initiatives

Welcoming the Modi’s mission for a cleaner and ODF India, companies from all across the country have decided to join hands and actively participate in the mission.

The Coal India has announced to spend a whopping Rs 235 crore on building toilets and improving sanitation in schools and households of underprivileged. The company has targeted to build around 6,000 toilet facilities in schools latest by March 2015, through engagement of various NGO agencies.

TCS, India’s largest IT firm, has announced to spend Rs 100 crores for building sanitation facilities for girl students in 10,000 schools. Another IT giant, HCL Technologies will adopt 100 villages to transform the villages with scalable models, impacting village communities and life in five areas — water, women’s welfare, education, health and malnutrition and sanitation.

While Wockhardt Foundation, a part of Wockhardt group has been building bio-toilets for past few years as part of social service and human welfare activities, FMCG giant HUL aims to construct 24,000 sanitation facilities by 2015. Indian sanitary ware brand Parryware also has announced its plans to build toilets in 25 schools across the country.
