“So long as you do not take the broom and the bucket in your hands, you cannot make your towns and cities clean.” Mahatma Gandhi
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a transformational initiative launched by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi. Responding to the clarion call by Hon’ble Prime Minister for a Swachh Bharat, Engineers India Limited (EIL), a Navratna Company, joined the nation in launching the “Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan” on October 2, 2014.
Sustaining the momentum in the ensuing years, EIL has undertaken number of initiatives including providing basic amenity of safe and clean toilets to a large segment of the Indian population especially the girl students under Swachh Vidyalaya Program. EIL has constructed 509 school toilets for girls and boys in the states of Bihar, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and Assam. Separate toilets were planned for girls and boys in schools, some of which are located in very remote areas.
From the past two financial years, EIL has wholeheartedly participated in the movement towards attaining the goals of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Number of activities including cleanliness drives in and around office premises, poster/slogan/essay competitions are regularly organised at all offices of the company across the country which has witnessed enthusiastic participation of all employees.
Swachh Bharat Pakhwadas are organized every year under the initiative. As part of the Swachhata Pakhwada activities, EILians continued to pool in their zealous efforts in pursuit of the ultimate goal of Swachh Bharat by carrying out cleanliness drives in the areas adjoining the Company’s Head Office at Bhikaiji Cama Place, New Delhi. As part of the Pakhwada celebrations, Swachhata Shapath is administered to all employees and competitions conducted for spreading awareness.
