Union Minister of Earth Sciences Mr Jitendra Singh has launched a special campaign focussing on cleanliness, including disposal of scrap and reducing pendency in government departments. Singh began the campaign by disposing of e-waste at the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG), followed by an inspection of the office and shredding of the first file in the Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) division.

According to a statement from the personnel ministry, the government of India’s ministries and departments have so far identified more than 67,000 sites for the purpose of carrying out cleanliness campaigns.

During the campaign, approximately 3 lakh electronic and 21 lakh physical files are scheduled for review.
