Jamshedpur, Sept 24: Piyush Sinha, the administrator of Jamshedpur Notified Area Committee (JNAC) chaired a review meeting with supervisors, managers, drivers and sanitary workers to assess and take updates on the sanitary and cleanliness drive launched in the city under the programme, ‘Garbage collection at every home.’ The focus during the meeting was on improving and expanding garbage collection services in a manner that the move reached out to every corner of the city.
The administrator instructed the supervisors to ensure that every household was connected to the garbage collection service and emphasized the importance of sending garbage collection vehicles to the designated areas at scheduled times. This initiative was aimed at preventing people from littering streets and drains.
The preventive measures adopted to prevent littering were to be divided in two phases; in the first phase, individuals found littering on roadsides or in drains will be made aware about the benefits of using the garbage collection service and the next would entail imposition of fines in case of the ‘awareness’ measure going unheeded.
Drivers and supervisors engaged in the ‘Garbage collection at every home’ drive, raised issues pertaining to execution of duties in their allotted areas that were discussed in the meeting and the deputy administrator, Mukesh Kumar was directed to address these concerns while Special Officer Ajit Kumar was instructed to launch a public awareness campaign through self-help groups. The administrator emphasized that connecting people to the garbage collection service should be a top priority, and those who failed to cooperate would be liable to action against them.
Instructions were given to organize special health checkup and safety camps for sanitation workers and supervisors engaged in the cleanliness drive and issuing Ayushman and labor cards to them. City Manager Christina Kachchhap was assigned the responsibility for organizing the camps and distribution of the Ayushman and Labour cards to the cleanliness mission workers concerned.
