Nearly 16 thousand 500 crore rupees have been earmarked by 71 Ministries and Departments of the Central Government for implementation of the Swachh Bharat Mission during the current fiscal.

The amount is over and above the budget of Ministries in-charge of sanitation which are Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation for Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin) and Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban).

Yesterday, Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha launched the Swachhata Action Plan (SAP) 2018-19 in New Delhi during a meeting of Secretaries and senior officials. The SAP Compendium 2018-19 was also released on this occasion.

An official release said, Mr Sinha also reviewed the implementation of SAP 2017-18. At the review meeting, the Cabinet Secretary emphasized that all Secretaries need to personally monitor implementation of SAP on a regular basis. Last year, Union Ministries had allocated over 18 thousand crore rupees towards this.
