India: Jal Shakti Launches Advisory Document on ODF Plus

Drinking Water and Sanitation secretary Parameswaran Iyer said the focus in ODF Plus would be on sustaining the momentum

Minister of State for Jal Shakti Rattan Lal Kataria on Saturday launched an advisory document on ODF Plus, and Swachh Gram Darpan mobile app, which are aimed at managing solid waste in villages.

ODF-Plus is the second phase of the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) with the objective of controlling the menace of liquid and solid waste in rural areas.

“In 2014, the Prime Minister introduced the SBM and now, because of people’s contribution, we are moving towards the 100 per cent success of this mission in October 2019,” said Kataria during National Planning Workshop on ODF Plus and Water Conservation here.

Drinking Water and Sanitation secretary Parameswaran Iyer said the focus in ODF Plus would be on sustaining the momentum attained through ODF.
