National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) has approved two projects for setting up of community toilets and procurement of dustbins for the Kumbh Mela-2019 in Allahabad.

The estimated cost for community toilets will be Rs 113 crore while for procurement of dustbins will cost Rs 3.6 crore. The decision was taken by the NMCG at its 13th Executive Committee meeting held here Tuesday.

According to official sources, the first project includes setting up of 27,500 community toilets and pre-fabricated toilets. Besides this, 20,000 community urinals will also be set up during the Kumbh Mela.

Another project includes deployment of 16,000 dustbins for solid waste management along with installation of lining bags in dustbins.
