<h2><u>*About Swatch Bharat Mission-</u></h2>
<p>Swachh Bharat Mission, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, or Clean India Mission is a country-wide campaign initiated by the Government of India in 2nd October, 2014 to eliminate open defecation and improve solid waste management and to create Open Defecation Free (ODF) villages. The program also aims to increase awareness of menstrual health management. [2] It is a restructured version of the Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan launched in 2009 that failed to achieve its intended targets</p><br>
<h2><u>*Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Swatch Bharat Mission-</u></h2><br>
<p>Initiated by the Government of India, the mission aimed to achieve an "open-defecation free" (ODF) India by 2 October 2019, the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi[6] through construction of toilets. An estimated 89.9 million toilets were built in the period.[7] The objectives of the first phase of the mission also included eradication of manual scavenging, generating awareness and bringing about a behavior change regarding sanitation practices, and augmentation of capacity at the local level.</p><br>

<h2><u>*Phase 2 of Swatch Bharat Mission-</u></h2><br>
<p>The second phase of the mission aims to sustain the open defecation free status and improve the management of solid and liquid waste, while also working to improve the lives of sanitation workers.[8] The mission is aimed at progressing towards target 6.2 of the Sustainable Development Goals Number 6 established by the United Nations in 2015. By achieving the lowest open defecation-free status in 2019, India achieved its Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.2 health target in record time, eleven years ahead of the UN SDG target of 31 December 2030.</p><br>
