Private sector can now select Swachh Bharat projects online

The Ministry of Urban Development in an initiative to rope-in private sector in the flagship programmes, like Swachh Bharat, the Narendra Modi government is opening a marketplace to put up all the cleanliness projects it wants help with. The Ministry has planned to include CII, Ficci and Assocham to link up with companies looking to spend their Corporate Sales Respectability (CSR) budget. The industry associations will help the government in connecting private sector with urban local bodies that are spearheading Swachh Bharat initiatives.
