The city corporation launched the city programme implementation unit (PIU) to fast track development projects and awareness activities linked to the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) as a part of Swachh Survekshan 2018. The PIU comprises five officials to implement information, education, and communication (IEC) activities with a goal to bring about behavioural change among the residents to support the cleanliness mission.Even as the preparation phase for Swachh Survekshan 2018 (survey to identify top cleanest cities in the nation) has been underway since August, the civic body was preoccupied with combating dengue fever and eradicating breeding zones of dengue mosquitoes.Since only little more than a month is left for the on-field survey to begin, Trichy Corporation has been gradually emphasising on Swachh Survekshan to retain the tagline, being the only city from Tamil Nadu to be in the top 10 cleanest cities for the last two years.To expedite all the SBM activities, which would help the civic body to score ample marks in the survey, city PIU was launched by the civic body at the corporation office recently and would oversee all IEC and capacity building activities pertaining to solid waste management. The office space for PIU has been equipped with computers and a digital library, the latter would house the collection of digitized documents since 1994."All SBM related programmes and capacity building initiatives will be discussed and implemented through the PIU , As Reported By TOI.

According to the Newspaper,A team of five officials comprising engineers and sanitary officer has been constituted to oversee and fast track the SBM programmes to complete the same before January 2018," said S Kannan, executive engineer and nodal officer for PIU.The Corporation has planned to sustain PIU even after the completion of Swachh Survekshan by retaining it as a digital library to house digitized documents in portable formats classified under eight sections including health, SWM, revenue, water supply and town planning."We have hired data entry operators for digitizing corporation's documents since 1994. In case if any resident approaches us seeking plan approval for buildings, we will able to access, identify and produce the requested documents at the earliest post digitization," the executive engineer added.Corporation sources said that they are keen on developing the PIU facility into a permanent digital library post the Swachh Survekshan so that the civic body can go paperless in maintaining the digital version of the documents and records stored over the years.
