Keeping in mind the complex waste management process, all urban local bodies have instructed to mechanise the entire cleaning process using sucking machines and other equipment.

Chief Secretary, Rathna Prabha instructed he Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Department at a meeting.

The equipment will be provided to the organisations of safai karmacharis at a subsidised rate. Employment opportunities for safai karmacharis would be created through the user fee contribution method.

It was also decided to implement the minimum wages provisions for the karmacharis as well as the loaders, drivers and other people associated with waste management. Other monetary/ social security benefits, such as PF and ESI, would also be extended to them.
