Shauchalay Nirmaan Ghar Ka Samman
The State Government has launched the Nishchay “Shauchalay Nirmaan Ghar Ka Sammaan” on 27th of September, 2016. This nischay is being executed in urban areas by Urban Development and Housing Department and in rural areas by Rural Development Department. Provision of toilet in every house will be made to make Bihar, free of open defecation, healthy and clean, without any discrimination to all households of the state under this Nishchay. All urban and rural families of the state will be encouraged for regular use of toilets by bringing about community behavioral changes. An approximate 1.68 crore toilet less families are being targeted to ensure they have toilet facilities in the next 5 years under this scheme.
To fulfill this Nishchay, two schemes have been started by the state government :
- Lohia Swacch Bihar Abhiyaan.
- Shauchalay Nirmaan Yojana (Urban areas).
