Success of Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban (SBM-U)

  • SBM-U was launched with a twin objective of making urban India Open defecation Free along with 100% scientific solid waste management.
  • Almost all urban India is now Open-Defecation-Free (ODF).
  • Scientific processing of solid waste, which stood at less than 20% at the start of the Mission in 2014, has more than tripled and now stands at 65%.
