To further improve the performance in SWM, various steps have been taken by Government, which inter alia includes, funding of SWM projects; issuance of directions, advisories and guidelines on SWM (door-to-door collection, source segregation and processing); organising Capacity Building (CB) workshops; reviewing performance periodically, etc.

This was informed by Minister of State (I/C) for Housing and Urban Affairs Shri Hardeep Singh Puri in a written reply in the Lok Sabha today.
