    NMC to follow Indore model to keep Nagpur clean

    Nagpur: Nagpur Municipal Corporation has been trying every measure to ensure the city remains ahead in Swachch Bharat Survey, however something misses out every time, pushing the city’s ranking on cleanliness meter considerably down. Now the NMC appears to have been taken clue from Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) which grabbed first spot in Swachh Bharat Survey held in 2017 and 2018. A team of standing and health committee members and Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) officials visited Indore on Tuesday to see how how Indore residents are playing a major role in keeping the city clean.

    “Every household segregates garbage at source. Despite having 19 zones with 85 wards, the IMC has adopted best practice in solid waste management from source to the dumping yard,” said health officer (sanitation) Dr Pradip . The NMC team also interacted with Indore residents.

    As per the delegation’s observation, the IMC collects garbage from market areas thrice a day. The IMC runs 12 city buses on CNG gas generated from the waste and plans to run all city buses on CNG by 2019, the IMC officials said. The IMC also collects usage charges for door-to-door garbage collection from residential and commercial establishments.

    Besides, it also uses 12 sweeping machines to clean major roads in the city. The NMC delegation comprised of standing committee chairman Virendra Kukreka, health committee chairman Manoj Chafle, additional municipal commissioner Aziz Sheikh, deputy commissioner Nitin Kapadnis, Dasarwar and assistant municipal commissioners Prakash Warhade and Suvarna Dakhane.
