West Bengal Receives ₹860.35 Cr to Enhance Urban Sanitation Infrastructure

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) has sanctioned ₹860.35 crore for West Bengal under Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban (SBM-U) 2.0, aiming to bolster waste management and sanitation facilities in the state.

The funds will support various projects, including the establishment of composting plants, Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs), and Secured Landfill Facilities (SLFs) to efficiently manage the state’s daily municipal solid waste of 4,046 tons. Moreover, 460 Compressed Bio-Gas (CBG) plants have been approved to promote sustainable Waste to Energy initiatives.

This significant investment is expected to significantly improve West Bengal’s urban sanitation infrastructure, aligning with the mission’s goal of achieving waste processing plants in all cities of the state by 2026.
