IX. Swachhta Helpline - 1916:
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.
