Swachh Bharat Mission(Grameen) Phase-II Guidelines

With the key objective of SBMG Phase I attained, the Government of India renewed its commitment to further enhance the sanitation and hygiene status in rural areas with the approval of Phase II of the programme. SBMG Phase II has been uniquely designed to leverage the capacity of individuals and communities in rural India to create a people’s movement to ensure that the ODF status of rural areas is sustained, people continue to practice safe hygienic behaviour and that all villages have solid and liquid waste management arrangements. SBMG Phase-II will be implemented from 2020-21 to 2024-25 in mission mode with a total estimated outlay of Rs.1,40,881 crores. This will be a novel model of convergence between different verticals of financing and various schemes of Central and State Governments to saturate the sanitation facilities for achieving the ODF Plus villages.
