Mahatma Gandhi had envisioned a clean, green, healthy and litter free India. As India commemorates his 150th birth anniversary, his principles continue to guide us on our journey towards “New India”. In line with Gandhiji’s vision, PMAY(U) proposes to launch angikaar, a campaign to mobilise communities for change management through awareness on best practices such as water & energy conservation, waste management, sanitation and hygiene.
The house is not only about four walls and roof but it is complete transformation of life. To make the life of beneficiaries fulfilling, connecting them with basic services at the household level is pertinent.
Angikaar has dual focus -behavioural change through adopting best practices and convergence with other schemes to seek benefits.
- Creating awareness on water and energy conservation, waste management, health & sanitation amongst beneficiaries.
- Aid convergence with missions of central Ministries to create an enabling environment.
- Enable families in adapting to newly constructed PMAY(U) homes through social behaviour change management.
- Build capacities of beneficiaries for Rain Water Harvesting, Tree plantation, Waste management etc.
