ENA India | 28 April 2016 |  ENA Bureau |

New Delhi, Apr 28 (ENA) In adherence to a report submitted by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has suggested various measures for universities to undertake to contribute to clean surroundings. One of the recommendations is to start skill development / diploma courses in technical departments with water, sanitation and solid waste as career options, as per an official notification.  Further, universities have been asked to make necessary amendments in the curricula at educational institutions to provide credit to the student’s practical projects on recycling and reusing the biodegradable and dry waste. UGC also wants varsities to develop an institutional framework by involving NSS (National Service Scheme), NCC (National Cadet Corps) or Nehru Yuvak Kendras, eco-clubs to ensure sustained public participation in the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and Ganga Rejuvenation.

Colleges under their purview should also be issued directions, recommending that they recognise Swachhata Diwas on the first working day of every week. The report prepared for Swachh Bharat Mission and Ganga Rejuvenation is aimed at improving the standards of living, providing adequate infrastructure and reorienting habits and behaviour that contributes to clean surroundings in a growing economy facing wide disparities in income and lifestyles and struggling to meet the requirements of public infrastructure. It is focused on people’s involvement, sustainability and time-bound results. – Courtesy      /      Published on 26/04/2016 UGC Letter reg.: Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and Ganga Rejuvenation.
