Swachh Bharat Abhiyan at Oil India Limited

Cleanliness is next to godliness. The great George Bernard Shaw, once said "Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world." Cleanliness depicts order and harmony. The father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi among his many narratives on the subject, once famously said, “A lavatory must be as clean as a drawing-room”. The honourable Prime Minister of India, Sri Narendra Modi launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan to realise the dream of Mahatma Gandhi for a clean India. In line, with the Prime Minister’s vision, Oil India Limited has undertaken the implementation of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan of the Government of India, in full fervour and zeal, through a number of activities and projects.
