60 GPs in the district have won the award

Zilla Panchayat CEO K B Anjanappa has said that measures will be taken to ensure that 38 gram panchayats will win Nirmal Gram Puraskar in the future.

Speaking at a workshop organised by the Nirmal Bharath Abhiyan, he said as many as 60 gram panchayats have won the award.

Measures will be taken to construct individual toilets in households, schools and anganwadi centres in the remaining 38 gram panchayats. Under Nirmal Bharath Abhiyan, a sum of Rs 4,700 will be given for the construction of individual toilet and a sum of Rs 4,500 will be given under MGNREGA.
