38 more GPs to win Nirmal Puraskar

Zilla panchayat CEO K B Anjanappa said, measures will be taken to ensure that 38 gram panchayats will win Nirmal Gram Puraskar shortly.

Speaking at a workshop organised by Nirmal Bharath Abhiyan here recently, he said as many as 60 gram panchayats have won the award. “So, measures will be taken to construct individual toilets in households, schools and anganwadi centres in the remaining 38 gram panchayats. Under Nirmal Bharath Abhiyan, Rs 4,700 is given for construction of individual toilet and Rs 4,500 under MGNREGA. Rs seven lakh to Rs 20 lakh will be given for scientific disposal of solid waste in gram panchayats,” he said.

ZP chief project officer Srinivas Rao said additional funds are being released to those GPs which have won Nirmal Gram Puraskar. Door number for newly-constructed houses should be given only after confirming the fact that it has a toilet, he added.
