IX. Swachhta Helpline - 1916: 

Shimla Municipal Corporation launched “Swachhta Helpline – 1916” on the first anniversary of Swachh Bharat Mission. The Swachhta Helpline (SHL) was launched by Hon’ble Chief Minister of the state on 02.10.2015. The SHL is replica of 108-Helpline which is a Health Helpline for attending emergencies in respect of patients, accidents reporting etc. This innovative idea of SHL was conceived as Shimla is a tourist destination and lot of littering was being observed across the city and on account of shortage of staff & movement of vehicle for only 8hrs, Municipal Corporation Shimla was not in position to counter this problem & further there was no system in place to address the issue of sanitation. Though Municipal Corporation takes all possible steps to prevent littering but through this helpline, residents of the city too are able to play an active role in keeping the city clean. The helpline number is a centralized contact point for any complaint pertaining to sanitation within the city.
