Varanasi is known as the city of Ghats and temples. There are 84 ghats on the bank of holy river Ganga. For cleaning of all 84 ghats National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), IL&FS Environment and Varanasi Nagar Nigam (VNN) jointly entered into an agreement for a period of 3 years.
The big challenge on ghats was to store the waste generated by devotees and local vendors. To overcome this challenge 70 nos. Stainless Steel dustbins were provided by IL&FS Technologies Ltd. through Nalanda Foundation. These bins were installed at various Ganaga Ghats in Varanasi.
The scheme continues to cater to the low income, relatively educated, unemployed youth. Gender ratio has improved with share of female candidates at 20% (previous year was less than 15%)
