Keeping India Clean


To keep India clean, garbage collection from homes and streets, transportation and disposal of garbage should be mechanized as in developed countries.
machines should be used for sucking plastic and paper sheets and bags. There should be no plastic papers flying in the wind.
machines should be used for sucking dry leaves also.
Green plants and grass along the roads should be cut using machines.
The following steps may make people conscious of cleanliness and dignity of keeping the places of work, residence, entertainment etc and surroundings clean
children in schools and colleges should be made to clean the schools/colleges, their lunch boxes etc.
there should be no posts of cleaner/sweeper in offices. The other staff should keep the offices and surroundings clean
Similarly business establishments should be made to keep their places and surroundings clean
In villages and towns, Volunteers for Cleanliness should be organized. These volunteers may devote about an hour in the mornings/evenings to keep the places clean. Their services should be recognized by giving awards carrying special privileges.

If the party comes to power:

i.there will be no need for Community(Caste) Certificates as there would be no discrimination for or against any caste while extending concessions, benefits etc.

ii. There will be no need for Income Certificates as schemes/benefits to people will not be based on the income

iii.There will be no need for certificates as to Small Farmers, as all farmers will be treated alike

iv.there will be no need for applying for separate patta for land as this will be done automatically by the revenue department on forwaring purchase/sale deed from the office of Sub-Registrar.

vii. There will be no need for cooking gas cards, as everyone will be able to buy cooking gas in the open market. Since there is shortage of cooking gas, government itself in the initial stage produce and distribute biogas, solar cookers, solar heaters, etc.

viii.there will be no need for environment clearance, as government will itself prevent pollution on collection of fee from industries just as garbage is collected by local bodies.

ix.there will be no need for applicants for licences/permissions to obtain and forward to the licence/approval issuing authorities No Objection Certificates from various offices like fire department, thasildar’s office. Village Administrative Officer, health department, etc., as these will be obtained directly by licence/approval issuing office.

xv.there will be no need for government to extend subsidies to farmers,consumers etc as the prices will be allowed to be determined by market forces. Only in unusual circumstances,the government would interfere.

xvi.there will be no power-cuts as adequate power will be generated from non-conventional sources like sun, wind, waves, biomass, urban waste/garbage etc. all cities, towns and major panchayats, electric trains/buses will be run.

How to keep India Clean?


Some of the things to be done to keep India Clean are:

1.Making available funds to local bodies:

a. for setting power plants using garbage either departmentally or through private participation

b. for settimg up manure plamts

c.for setting up plants to recycle glass items, iron & steel items, plastic items, paper &paper products or setting up plants on private participation

d. for setting plants for Cleaning dirty water for use in irrigation

e.for putting up Pay & Use toilets in markets, bus stands, play grounds,, etc. and for buying land for putting up toilets

f. for buying dustbins, trucks with mechanical devices for loading and unloading of garbage

2. imposing heavy fines for spitting, urinating etc.

3. using solid garbage for filling land

If I had been Electricty Miniser in a sate in India


If had been the Electricity Minister of a state of India,

i.government would have floated tenders for generation and supply of electricity by private producer who generate or would generate electricty from non-conventional sources like bo-gas,garbage, waves, wind,sunlight,etc and decided on the tenders early,in the presence of all the bidders in a transparent manner. if all had agreed to supply at the lowest quotation, all would have been given orders.

ii. government would have created a separate cadre of officials for promoting use of power saving schemes like solar water heater,solar pumps,wind mill pumps etc.

iii.government would have set up or encouraged private parties to set up factories to manufacture solar panels and other requirements for generating solar power,etc

iv. government would have granted or encouraged banks to grant interest free loans(government compensates the banks), to all organisations engaged in research on minimising electricity usage

v.government would also have granted subsidy for household,office and industrial equipment and machinery which minimise consumption of electricity discourage use of electricity for cooking, products like solar cookers would have been heavily subsidised and subsidy would have been granted for publiciy for these products

vii.all local bodies-panchayats, municipalities.etc.) would have been made to put up solar street lights,

viii. a scheme would have been drawn, whereby factories, offices,shops, houses etc.which consume lesser electricity in a year compared to previous year would get electricty credits- electricity bills in the next year would be reduced by some percentage points

ix.all government establishments including offices would have have been using solar or wind energy,

x.local bodies would have been encouraged to set up power plants using garbage for generating electricity, where private parties had not come forward to set up such plants,

xi.the above mentioned schemes would also have reduced electricty losses in transmission

Is it beyond the capacity or genius of the Government/people


When one enters a village or a town in India/Tamilnadu from any side, he/she finds at the entrance garbage on both sides of the street/road as also on part of the streets. Similarly when one leaves the village/town from any side, garbage is found dumped/strewn.The garbage in villages and towns consists of plastic cups,plastic bags, paper, home garbage, glass, agricultural waste, factory waste, contruction waste etc, Garbage is also found thrown in the rivers where people take bath, wash clothes, and from where drinking water is tapped.

Can the local authorities not place at convenient places, separate garbage bins for plastics, paper,glass,meals etc, and force the people to put the garbage in correct bins, collect the same on a regular basis , transport to a far off place, recycle whatever is possible,prepare manure and produce bio gas where possible and use the remaining as earth fill- for filling up ditches, etc. ?

If the people/government is unable to dispose of the garbage in a proper way, the government should depute concerned officials to places like Hong Kong, Singapore and European countries for studying how the waste is disposed off in those countries.

There should be separate drains for rain water which should be drained into lakes and for sewarage which should be taken to a place where it is purified before it is used for irrigation.

People should also be forced not to spit or urinate on roads and other public places

There should be frequent compaigns to create awareness among the people on the need for keeping the places neat and clean

India- Electricity Production and Consumption


India is the 6th largest producer and consumer of electricity in the world. However, India’s per capita production and consumption is very low as seen from the table below.

(million kwh)

Percapita prod.(Kwh) Consumption(million kwh) Percapita consu ption(kwh)
Bangladesh   156     22990    147      21380    137
Vietnam     87     66810    768      59300    682
Venezuela     27   113300   4196      83020   3075
China 1339 3041000   2271  2835000   2117
France     62   535700   8640    447000   7210
UK     61   368600   6043    345800   5660

INDIA 1166   761700     653    568000     487


Even as late as 2003, Vietnam’s per capita production and consumption of electricity was much lower than India.  Electricity consumption is an indication of the economic and social development of a country.  India should increase its consumption by about 10 times to join the club of economically developed countries. Every town authorities should be encouraged to produce electricity from garbage, biogas and sunlight in cooperation with local consumers. Every water reservoir should attempt to produce hydro power.

India – Irrigation


While the Government of India has a ministry for water resources, many state governments do not have separate ministries for irrigation or water resources. In some state governments, Public Works Department looks after irrigation. That too mainly on regulation like opening and closing of the dam water. It would be useful if each state government had a separate ministry for irrigation. In addition to constructing new dams and canals, this ministry should have the following responsibilities;

  1. Linking rivers in the state. There is no need to mix this issue with linking rivers of the country as a whole.
  2. Creating links among lakes and between lakes and rivers.
  3. Lake management including deepening lakes and continuously desilting them
  4. Creating new lakes to ensure that each village has a lake
  5. Water management including draining rain water in pits and other shallow water into the nearby lakes. Water left in pits evaporates and it does not recharge ground water.
  6. Keeping the lakes and rivers clean
  7. Cleaning waste water and then using the same for irrigation without letting into the lake. This will ensure that lake water is not contaminated and this water can be used for drinking after purification.
  8. Cleaning river banks and ensuring that no garbage is dumped there
  9. Sanctioning loans for digging irrigation wells including bore wells. If lakes have water, digging wells will not lower the water table. It is wrong to ban new bore wells, as was seriously thought of by government sometime ago.
