The central government had approved a Rs 433.74 crore action plan submitted by 28 Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) to address the issue of urban waste.

The government announced a plan to make Indian cities garbage-free under the Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban 2.0, and one of the important objectives of the mission is Lakshya Zero Dumpsite. It was to remediate 16 crore tonnes of legacy waste dumpsites occupying 15,000 acres of city land.
