Srinivasan Chandrasekaran of Indian Green Services strived hard to make the campaign, whose mission was to make every household of Jodhpur serviced by Solid and Liquid Resource management (SLRM), a reality.

Srinivasan has been promoting zero waste management for nearly two decades and is also the architect of Vellore Hill Restoration project and Paivihir Eco Village.

Srinivasan was also interviewed by Khan in the popular social transformation series Satyamev Jayate.

Khan expressed his delight to support this work and also contributed Rs. 11 lakhs towards this project.

February 26, 2016 is the deadline of this project where the city of Jodphur will be free from open air litter and garbage. A giant clock placed in the city is on a countdown to this objective. Khan has committed himself to visit the city again on the deadline date.

The SLRM will employ people below poverty line and generate considerable employment. It involves fetching biodegradable and recyclable products in a separate bin on a tricycle. These waste items are transported to a central facility to be sorted out for recycling. Each item is then either recycled or converted to manure to be sold in the market. This helps the program to become self-sustainable.

AID through its innovative work and collaborations is present in almost 20 states of India. AID is committed to just, sustainable and equitable development of India and works in the poorest of the poor neighborhoods.

    I am inspired to see your Activity in your Web Site. I am a Cost & Management Accountant aged 67 years having 42 years Post Qualification Experience. I have developed Unique Livelihood Development Project by involving Private Sector with Attractive Business Model where Government will convert their NPA into Performing Assets (PA), in particular, will take care for Clean and Continuous Ganga and applicable to Other Rivers and Creeks . Government spent Rs 70,000 Crores. Result is nil.

    I am sure that if you join hands then, we can see Clean and Continuous Ganga and massive Socioeconomic Development, in particular, say 52% population of Ganga Basin and more percentage of people living in BASIN of Other Rivers & Creeks. If am ready with One Page Bullet Points About Project.
