Hyderabad has progressed to the next level in prevention of open defecation with the Swachh Bharat Mission declaring the capital as an Open Defecation Free Plus Plus city, the first metro city in the country to be certified so.

The declaration came after Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) ensured that there was no open urination, besides initiating scientific treatment of faecal sludge through Sewage Treatment Plants (STP), among other measures. The Swachh Bharat Mission’s ODF ++ certification signifies the sanitation, cleanliness and provision

of basic amenities in a city.

As per ODF norms, the ODF recertification happens every six months. Accordingly, GHMC has completed its field inspection for ODF++ certification on January 19 and 20.

“Across the country, very few cities have been declared ODF++ certified places and Hyderabad happens to be the first metro city to get the certification,” GHMC Commissioner M. Dana Kishore said here on Tuesday, after the Mission made the declaration on Monday.
