Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is an initiative by the Government of India to make the country completely clean and hygienic. This mission was launched by Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi on 2nd October 2014 and it urges people to fulfill Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of a clean India by his 149th Birth anniversary in 2018. Therefore, the mission envelops all rural and urban areas of the country to create a clean and hygienic environment. The clarion call given by our Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi seeking citizen participation has found increasing resonance in the efforts of various stakeholders that have transformed it into a mass movement. Conscious of its social responsibility, PIET College for Women have plunged itself full throttle into this initiative in order to contribute towards this noble cause. Committed to the cause of 'Swachhata', PIET has undertaken a slew of initiatives inside the campus as well as at the community level.
The efforts by the college, aimed at accelerating the pace of realization of this mission, include plantation drives, solar lighting, rain water harvesting, real-time air quality monitoring system, generating awareness about waste segregation, installation of blue and green dustbins within the campus, cleaning of campus, sensitization programmes on sanitation, hygiene participation in Swachh Pakhwada- an initiative of Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, participation in Institutional Swachhata Ranking and so on.
Going beyond the brief and taking the mission a step forward, PIET endeavours to make its campus not just a clean but also a green and hygienic one which proves to be a model for others to emulate.
