Swachh Bharat Abhiyan started by the Government of India on 2 October 2014 to sensitize people about maintaining cleanliness not only at their residence but in the surroundings as well. The specific objective of the initiative is to eradicate open defecation by 2 October 2019, the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi.

In this series, the Clean-up Drive and Eco-Awareness campaign was organized at Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna railway station, Majestic, Bengaluru, in association with Eco-Watch and Indian Railways on January 31, 2018.

The students along with the staff of railway department took out a procession all across the railway station, including the platforms and surrounding areas outside the station to create awareness on eco system by chanting slogans such as “Clean India Our India”, “Go Green Get Clean”, and “Nama Bharata Swachh Bharata”.
