Karnal retains ODF++ status for 4th yr in row

Karnal, January 23

For the fourth year in a row, the Karnal Municipal Corporation has succeeded in retaining the status of Open Defecation Free Plus-Plus (ODF++).

Commissioner, KMC, Vikram Singh said the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs granted the status to the civic body on the basis of a field verification survey conducted by a team on December 7 and 8. The team surveyed 28 locations, including 13 public toilets.

Congratulating the residents and MC officials on the achievement, the Commissioner said, "Team efforts have helped the district retain the ODF++ status. It is a continuous process and requires year-round efforts. We will try our best to retain it in the coming years also," he added.

Sources said the team members had also inspected a sewerage treatment plant, commercial areas, slum areas, railway station and residential colonies. — TNS
