MoHUA Approves Rs.8.60 Bn for Urban Swachhata in West Bengal

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) has sanctioned ?8.60 billion under the Swachh Bharat Mission Urban 2.0 (SBM-U 2.0) to enhance urban sanitation infrastructure in West Bengal. This significant investment aims to improve cleanliness and hygiene across urban areas in the state, supporting the broader goal of creating cleaner and healthier cities.

The funds will be utilised for various projects, including the construction of modern public toilets, solid waste management systems, and wastewater treatment facilities. These initiatives are designed to address the critical need for improved sanitation in densely populated urban centres, ensuring better public health outcomes and environmental sustainability.

MoHUA officials emphasised that the approval of this substantial funding demonstrates the government's commitment to transforming urban sanitation in West Bengal. They highlighted that the initiatives under SBM-U 2.0 will not only enhance infrastructure but also promote behavioural change among residents through awareness campaigns and community engagement.

West Bengal's urban local bodies (ULBs) will be the primary implementers of these projects, working closely with the state government and MoHUA to ensure timely and effective execution. The collaboration aims to achieve significant progress in urban swachhata (cleanliness), contributing to the overall development and livability of cities in the state.

This allocation under SBM-U 2.0 reflects the central government's continued focus on urban development and public health, aiming to create cleaner, greener, and more sustainable urban environments. The approved projects are expected to commence shortly, with completion targeted within the stipulated timelines.
