“The application and platform developed will help the center and individual ULBs to ensure effective implementation of waste management and waste collection. The MoU signed is yet another initiative by the MoUD, using technology to improve and smoothen ground-level mechanisms and operations. The Ministry will strive to ensure that all the 4041 ULBs enter into agreement with BSNL for this work,” – said Shri. Praveen Prakash, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Urban Development and mission director – Swachh Bharat Mission.
BSNL CMD Shri Anupam Srivastava said – “We are very happy to be associated with MoUD to provide such an important service to the nation. The platform would further enable individual municipalities to manage and monitor their workforce and the fleet assigned to collect waste, hence using technology to solve on-ground issues. We hope that the application of the solution would result in efficient on-ground staff handling, and prove to be a big step towards the Swachh Bharat dream.”
