On 2nd October 2014, PM Mr Narendra Modi launched the Swachh Bharat Mission at Rajpath in New Delhi. “A clean India would be the best tribute India could pay to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary in 2019,” he proclaimed. Just a kilometer away, at ONGC Videsh, employees and members of the Board took the Swacchta Pledge on June 16, 2016 and reiterated their commitment to create the India of Gandhi’s dreams.

Swachh Bharat Mission was launched across the country as a national movement two years ago. “While the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan has taken the shape of a mass movement across the nation, a behavioral change is needed,” speaking on the occasion of launch of the Swachhta Pakhwada, Mr PK Road, Director (Operations) exhorted the employees of ONGC Videsh to join the mission and honour the pledge in letter and spirit.

A roadmap has been chalked out for the fortnight where a concerted effort will be made to make everyone an active participant in the swachhta campaign. Plantation drive, slogan and poster making competition, cleanliness drive in identified schools and in office premises and nearby areas are some of activities planned.
An emotive and thought-provoking film on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was also screened on the occasion.
