Campuses across the country to be cleaner, higher education regulator UGC has asked colleges and universities to set up cleanliness panels as it works to launch a national student-engagement campaign for the purpose.

In a letter to vice-chancellors of all universities, UGC secretary Jaspal S Sandhu said the regulatory body is partnering with the urban development ministry to launch a the campaign for making students active stakeholders in making India clean.

It suggested that the institutions administer a "swachhata" pledge and maintain a record form with signature of students of each class who take this pledge.

In the pledge, students undertake to devote two hours per week to voluntary work for cleanliness while also aiming to add more volunteers for the cause.


"it is also requested that a Swachhata Ambassador Committee (SAC) of students and teachers be set up for overseeing and monitoring the cleanliness and hygiene status of the institution. Please keep a record of the SAC that has been set up, with members' details and composition," the UGC letter said.



students can register themselves on swachhbharat.mygov.in.
