It is once again reiterated that Resident Welfare Association (RWA) along with Area Welfare Officers(AWO) have been playing very vital role in promoting Social, Cultural and other Welfare Activities of the residents. They also actively coordinate with a various civic authorities to provide civic amenities and services.
2. All RWAs and AWOs were requested to launch cleanliness drive through various programmes like voluntary participation of residents in cleaning (Shramdaan), ensuring disposal of garbage, awareness programmes etc. It is pertinent to point out that in accordance with existing instructions recognized RWAs frame Annual Action Plan for various activities. The achievement with reference to Annual Action Plan is required to be indicated by RWAs while applying for grants-in-aid. RWAs are requested to include cleanliness drive as one of the important targets in their Annual Action Plan and periodically inform DOPT about their achievements on this aspect. RWAs and AWOs are requested to carry out cleanliness drives voluntarily and also in association/coordination with respective civic authorities.
