Emphasizing on the prominence of hygiene, our “Father of The Nation” contributed his best for a growing India. His idea of a developed nation comprised of creating a clean and disease-free environment. As we observe the 148th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on 2nd October 2017, we ascend a level higher in making his dream of yesterday, a reality of today. “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” or cleanliness drive of India was flagged-off in the year 2014. With the mission of creating a clean India, Navi Mumbai also joins in the nation-building efforts.

Just like any other part of the country, Navi Mumbai witnesses the active participation of people every year in the ‘Abhiyan’ or mission, to upkeep the sanitation and hygiene standards of the satellite city. Under the mission, many cities, as well as rural areas, have been able to eliminate open defecation by 100 percent, through the development of individual, cluster, and community toilets.

A lot has been achieved and a lot more is yet to be achieved!




Gandhi believed the change starts when people take initiatives on individual levels. With an aim to promote the cause, it marked the beginning of the new era for the country. The synchronization of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan with Gandhi Jayanti is only more apt to promote the drive and encourage people to give a strong backing to the mission.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world”

– Mahatma Gandhi
