To complete the goal of cleanliness and make Rajkot city clean, the Zopadpatti/slum area people will be given Rs 8000 as grant so that they can build their own toilet in their home.
Tipper Van for Garbage Collection –
Till date, 60% of Rajkot city is covered with Tipper van for garbage collection. 6 wards among 23 wards of Rajkot city are not having tipper van and so these 6 wards will soon have door to door garbage collection in tipper van.

The Pradyuman Park beautification will be done.

As per Environment standard, the Metro City should have 5% green belt but currently Rajkot city is having only 2% green belt. To improve the green belt percentage, new plantation and beautification at traffic circle will be made with development of new parks/gardens in Rajkot. There will be new 20 to 25 gardens till 2020.
The Rajkot city will have 24 hours water supply with 135 litre water per person. 100% water charge and 100% every water connection will have meter.
