NSS volunteers undertake validation of AMRUT Survey data
The NSS units of Vidya organised a residential program for validating the data collected as part of the AMRUT survey conducted on 27 – 28 June 2019. About 15 students participated in the program which was lead by Mr Hari. The collected data were sorted, edited and verified.
What is AMRUT?
The scheme was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in June 2015 with the focus to establish infrastructure that could ensure adequate robust sewage networks and water supply for urban transformation by implementing urban revival projects. Rajasthan was the first state in the country to submit State Annual Action Plan under AMRUT. Both the schemes “Housing for All by 2022” and “Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation” were launched on the same day. The scheme is dependent with public private partnership model.
The purpose of AMRUT is to (i) ensure that every household has access to a tap with assured supply of water and a sewerage connection; (ii) increase the amenity value of cities by developing greenery and well maintained open spaces (e.g. parks); and (iii) reduce pollution by switching to public transport or constructing facilities for non-motorized transport (e.g. walking and cycling).(Wikipedia)
