Comprehensive efforts lead to the current accomplishment

As per reports, ODF plus adds to the ODF plan initiated by the central government under the Swachcha Bharat Mission.

As per reports, the panchayat officials apprised that streamlined efforts for comprehensive and meticulous waste management have been functional for the past 10 months. Coupled with the cooperation of the citizens, a number of initiatives have been helpful in getting through with the objectives of a clean village.
