Press Trust of India  |  Ahmedabad 

The government today came out with an 'Urban and Cleanliness Policy' for better management of solid and liquid waste in cities.

Among other things, the policy aims at complete abolition of manual scavenging.

Unveiling it, said the policy seeks to streamline collection and disposal of all kinds of waste in cities and towns.

A system to convert solid waste into fuel to generate "green energy" will be set up, he said.

The policy also puts a thrust on recycling of drainage water, Rupani said, adding that it is line with the National Urban Policy.
