WELCOME TO 1
CAMPAIGN CLEAN INDIA/CHANDIGARH.To mark the beginning of “World Tourism Week-2012”, Chandigarh Administration observes “Clean Chandigarh Day” today as an introduction to Clean India/ Chandigarh Campaign by successfully organising Cleanliness Drives at Plaza, Sec-17 and at Railway Station in the morning. Lack of hygiene and cleanliness particularly in frequently visited tourist destinations has negatively impacted tourism in our Country. To meet the challenge, the Ministry of Tourism has decided to launch “Campaign Clean India”. 2
The OBJECTIVE The objective of this Campaign is to ensure an acceptable level of cleanliness and hygiene levels at various public places. It will involve sensitizing all sections of society on the importance of cleanliness and hygiene in public places. 3 CLEANLINESS DRIVES
4 Cleanliness and proper hygiene are universally regarded as indispensable existential norms that must inform and permeate all our actions. Conversely, lack of or inadequate personal and environmental cleanliness will have a pull- down impact on the image-India, the worst hit being the tourism sector where the first impression of a visitor is often his last. Therefore, the vision is to look for an India that impacts a visitor, to begin with, for its cleanliness and hygiene. The vision The Campaign will be a blend of persuasion, education, training, demonstration and sensitization of all segments of our society. The objective eventually will be to ensure the cleanliness and environmental hygiene at specific identified destinations. The Mission
