The Mahindra Group has successfully taken part in the Swachh Bharat campaign during the first week of August 2015. The company has implemented the Swachh Vidyalaya (SBSV) program, as a result of which, it has constructed toilet blocks in schools at 1171 locations across the country. These locations have been earmarked by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). Rajeev Dubey, the Group President (HR & Corporate Services) and Member of the Group Executive Board said, “The Mahindra Group has completed its target and handed over 3784 toilets under the Swachh Bharat: Swachh Vidyalaya (SBSV) Program. These toilets are spread over 1171 locations across 11 states and 104 districts. In addition, over and above the target, we are in the process of handing over a further 556 toilet units over the next few days, which will make a grand total of 4340 toilet units.”

Swachh Bharat: Swachh Vidyalaya is the nationwide campaign with the motto of Clean India, Clean Schools. By the virtue of this campaign, it is to be ensured that every school in the country has proper sanitation, well-maintained water as well as hygiene facilities. These toilets are in a block configuration and usually have five individual units. Majority of these are located in differently abled and girls’ schools and cater to their needs. These toilets also incorporate efficient usage of water as well as eco-friendly wastewater disposal.

Dubey said, “We are very happy that we could bring engineering, technical and execution excellence to complete this project, and we are committed not only to maintain these toilets for the next one year but to also create the necessary awareness, mind-set shift and ownership by the school children and staff to ensure proper and sustained usage and upkeep of the facilities that we have created.”
