Industry Review

The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission) reached its peak in the financial year 2018-19. Many states declared themselves open defecation free (ODF), and many, in fact, went on to ODF+, signifying solid-liquid waste management.

After the toilet construction (to which Banka BioLoo contributed through installing bio-toilets across the country), it was natural for the country to move towards waste management. Fecal sludge treatment and management is one of the focus areas of the central government and state governments. Banka BioLoo is an active participant in this too. The Company bagged two contracts, one each in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, to construct fecal sludge treatment plants (FSTP) in urban and semi-urban areas.

Led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Mission aims to achieve an open defecation free (ODF) India by 2 October 2019, the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi, by constructing 12 million toilets in rural India at a projected cost of Rs 1.96 lakh crore (US$30 billion).

Due to the Mission, awareness amongst people for cleanliness and sanitation increased rapidly, and that contributed immensely to business enhancement. Indian Railways, for instance, has fitted over 2 lakh bio-tanks in train toilets, ensuring fecal-matter free rail tracks. Banka BioLoo, among other activities, undertakes operations and maintenance of these bio-toilets in trains.
