Dear friends,

The Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation (MDWS) is organizing SWACCHATHON 1.0 – a Swachh Bharat Hackathon to crowd source solutions to some of the pressing issues faced during the implementation of Swachh Bharat Mission. The Ministry looks forward to innovative solutions from you focusing on the target group of students, professionals and organizations including start-ups.

Subsequently, the selected participants will be required to present a live demonstration of their solution in Round 2. The finals are to be held on 8th of September, 2017. Attractive cash prizes will be given to the winners in each category. Further details regarding the event can be accessed on the website .
