The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today reviewed the progress of the Swachh Vidyalaya Programme at a high level meeting comprising top officials from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, the NITI Aayog and the PMO. The Prime Minister had announced from the ramparts of the Red Fort during his Independence Day address last year, his Government’s intention to construct toilets in all schools within one year.



The Prime Minister was informed about the current status of construction of toilets in schools across various states. Toilets are being constructed by States, PSUs, as well as some private sector entities. Based on the available data, the Prime Minister noted that several states are already close to achieving the hundred percent target. He directed concerned officials to focus on these states immediately, so that these states complete the task at the earliest. The Prime Minister has directed the Cabinet Secretary Shri Ajit Seth, and OSD in the Cabinet Secretariat Shri P.K. Sinha to personally review the figures being reported from various parts in the country, so that any bottlenecks in the full implementation of the vision of “Swachh Vidyalaya” initiative can be removed expeditiously. Observing specifically the gaps in implementation of the targets accepted by some PSUs and some private sector entities, the Prime Minister directed that these be looked into, so that these organizations can also meet their targets within the stipulated timeframe.

Union Minister for Human Resource Development Smt. Smriti Irani was present at the meeting.
