GHMC introduces new ringtone to create awareness on sanitation

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has introduced one ringtone to create awareness on sanitation, lifting of garbage, reuse of solid waste.

Whenever a person calls the GHMC official phone, he/she will hear the ring tone and would know about the process of sanitation. According to GHMC Commissioner and Special Officer Dr. B. Janardhan Reddy the main idea behind this ringtone is to involve all the citizens in providing better sanitation.

At present, about 1600 phones have been provided to all officials at various levels. On an average, each official receives at least 50 calls a day. Therefore, at least 1.40 lakh people would learn about the sanitation process through the new ringtone.

The Commissioner said that the State Government was providing two dust bins (one for wet and another for dry waste) to all the residents in the GHMC limits. TGHMC sanitation workers will come and procure the waste from the residents itself. (INN)
