“Swachh Bharat” Pledge by Students of Colleges and Universities

Students across the country from different colleges and universities will take the “Swatch Bharat” pledge on February 29 to spread the message of a clean India and become "ambassadors of social change" by the government.

In a letter to all Vice-Chancellors, UGC has said the Swachh Bharat Mission has entered a very "crucial phase" and requires concerted efforts by all stakeholders to achieve its objectives.

"In this endeavour, the entire student fraternity of India can become our ambassadors of social change," the letter by UGC secretary Jaspal S Sandhu said.

"You are, therefore, requested to kindly conduct mass pledges of students within 29th February, 2016 in your university and affiliated colleges and also encourage the students to take up cleanliness activities to honour their pledges," the letter added.

In the pledge the students will commit to remaining clean and give two hours every week to voluntary work for cleanliness. The students will also commit on spreading the idea of a clean city ,“Swatch Bharat” in cities, villages and towns and will take the responsibility to encourage 100 other persons to take the same vow.
