On October 1, 2023, the Ministry of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) embarked on a momentous journey toward the realization of a ‘Garbage Free India.’ This remarkable endeavor, named ‘Shramdaan,’ echoed the national initiative endorsed by the Hon’ble Prime Minister. The event was meticulously designed to cultivate a sense of collective duty and proactive involvement, uniting participants from various MSME offices across the country.

The central theme of ‘Shramdaan’ revolved around the concept of achieving a ‘Garbage Free India.’ Underpinning the importance of cleanliness, the event was a rallying call for citizens to take proactive measures in the pursuit of a cleaner and healthier nation.

The epicenter of this endeavor was the Development Facilitation Office in Okhla, Phase-1, New Delhi. This location served as the nucleus of the nationwide cleanliness drive, symbolizing a microcosm of the broader mission.

Inspired by the clarion call issued by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, urging every citizen to contribute their time and effort to the cause of cleanliness, ‘Shramdaan’ was conceived as an embodiment of “Ek Tareekh Ek Ghanta Ek Saath” (One Date, One Hour, Together). It was a resounding response to this call to action.

‘Shramdaan’ transcended mere participation; it epitomized a united and concerted effort. Enthusiastic volunteers from the Ministry of MSME, representing its diverse range of organizations and field offices spread throughout the nation, actively engaged in the initiative. This collective synergy magnified the impact of the cleanliness drive.

This monumental Swachhata (cleanliness) campaign mobilized eager volunteers to address the issue of garbage disposal comprehensively. Its mission extended beyond the immediate vicinity, aiming to instill a profound sense of responsibility for maintaining cleanliness in everyday life.

By encouraging active participation from citizens, ‘Shramdaan’ aimed to cultivate a deep sense of ownership. Participants were not mere spectators; they became integral contributors to the noble cause of nurturing a cleaner and healthier environment for all.
