Economics of Swachh Bharat
Swachh Bharat Campaign was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 2nd of October, 2014 at Rajghat, New Delhi with an aim to make India clean. Aim is to provide sanitation facilities to every family, including toilets, solid and liquid waste disposal systems, village cleanliness, and safe and adequate drinking water supply by 2nd October, 2019. It will be a true tribute to the Father of the Nation on his 150th birth anniversary. It is significant that the PM himself is taking very proactive role in making the campaign a success; at Rajghat he started the campaign by cleaning the street himself. However, it has been clearly declared that the campaign is not only the duty of the Government but each and every citizen of the country is equally responsible to keep the nation clean or swachh. How relevant is Swachh Bharat Abhiyan for Indian economy and what will be the possible impact of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan on economy now and after 10-15 years? This paper is an attempt to deal with these issues of economic aspect of Clean India Campaign. Universal Sanitation is at the core of India's development agenda. Some of the key areas of impact of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan are Health, Tourism, Rural development and Foreign Investment.
