Namami Tate Is a campaign brought to you by the Ministry of Earth Sciences in collaboration with the Government of India. This campaign is part of the Government of India’s 75 week celebration of Azadi ka Amrit Mohotsav. Through Namami Tate, we are targeting cleaning of some of the dirtiest beaches of India with the help of the Government as well as fellow citizens. Beaches play a fundamental role in maintaining the health of the oceans and also provide habitat to a number of marine species.

However, last year, a group of researchers from ICAR-Central Institute of Fisheries Education (CIFE) found that the north-east Arabian Sea, just off Mumbai, contained an estimated 379 MT of marine debris of which plastics contributed to 40.6% of the total by weight. A major portion of this debris washes up on the beaches creating health, environmental, economic as well as social hazards. The fast-paced growth of the tourism sector combined with the lack of awareness on the part of citizens about the damaging impact of pollution is one of the leading causes of the abysmal condition of our beaches. The Namami Tate campaign aims to clean these beaches and protect our precious marine biodiversity.

The Ministry of Earth Sciences invites suggestions from the citizens of India about the innovative ways in which we can conduct this beach cleaning activity. We value your suggestions which would be instrumental in implementing this campaign.

The best entries from the citizens will be identified by the Ministry and will be featured on the MyGov page.

The last date to receive suggestions is 15th August 2022.

jai hind sir privatise the cleaning of beaches and keep strict supervision by NGOs involved in the mission. Employment will be generated for locals. NGO official should be given all rights to fine the private players for violations of any laid down norms and the norms should be very stringent. Also minimum 2 to 3 km area before the beach should be out of bounds for every thing. That implies people will walk or take e vehicle to reach beach from 3kms. All shops which are allowed inside will be monitored closely by NGO official for any violations and fined immediately to avoid any waste material in and around.

Providing incentive for the scrap collectors in such areas, setting up of Tourist Place Cleaning and Beautification Professional Management and Services under Ministry of Tourism and through by setting up of national organisation under PPP mode through the use of latest technologies in the world will bring sea changes within days and can make it a professional agency too. This will boost tourism potential and also the national and international rating too.

Trash in our oceans is a serious problem that threatens the marine environment and dependent livelihoods. 80% of marine trash comes from land-based sources and, although it is an entirely man-made problem, it is also entirely preventable. As well as refusing single-use items, reducing your waste, reusing items and recycling trash, you can become part of the solution and make a difference by running beach and underwater cleanup events.

As well as preventing waste from entering the ocean, running cleanup events also helps raise community awareness about the issue of marine debris. Plus, recording data on the trash you collect can influence long-term solutions and decision making.

On Saturday morning I went to Belmont Shore beach in long beach for the 30 min Beach Clean-up, I had to arrive there at 10:00 sharp to sign in or I wouldn’t have been able to participate. When I arrived I received a raffle ticket to win a price at the end of the beach clean-up, so I was really anxious to see if I was going to win something. This was the first time I had ever done a beach clean-up so I was really excited to do this because I like to try new things and do something out of the ordinary. When I was cleaning the beach I found a lot of stuff that shouldn’t belong at the beach. I picked up a lot of sticks, feathers, candy wrappers, straws, pieces of plastic cups and a piece of glass. When I picked up all this trash I was really happy because I felt like I was making a difference and helping the beach to be clean and that’s the way it should be. I really had a lot of fun because while doing this I was also getting exercise which I really like to do.

Hello, Every hawket who sells eatables near beaches should carry with him a plastic bin & advice his customers to throw paper plastic & other edible waste into this. He or She in turn should carry this bin & throw the waste into a garbage bins placed opposite the sea coast. Garbage collection van's should in turn collect these disposable waste & dump these into dumping yards Imposition of fines & its implementation should be made mandatory by the civic bodies. The construction of washrooms away from the entrance to the beaches or sea coasts should be taken up. Visitors coming to the beach should be advised to use these washrooms only nstead of relieving themselves on open grounds. The carcasses of dead fishes, crabs, turtles & other sea creatures should not be allowed to remain on the sea coasts. Large scale dumping of oil, & other toxic substances which threaten the lives of sea creatures should not be allowed. A strict vigil on sea vessels carrying these should be checked

Namaste ,,,
In Karnataka most valuable course is MSW , in this field work is to be conduct from students,,,my suggestion is to send social work students to get clean the beach, and write report on that,,,,and made the the Social work camp in 7 days and all students should give the awareness about cleaning the beach and surrounding for the people's . by doing this, social work feel will get the students. And beach will also gets clean. we need apply penalty for visitors who throw the waste bottles , tea cups, and use and throw things in the beach and other surrounding. if we do this things in practical, definitely beaches will gets clean, and we feel clean in the beach, and also by doing awareness programs in entertainment way,,,people's will get knowledge about cleaning in public and tourist places. one more thing is , we provide a job in this beac section for peon post un employment problem will also solved.

Mr.Prime Minister: Most of the beaches have lot of mobile vendors of eatables . The main source of garbage is from them as people buy food stuff from them, eat on the sea shore and throw the garbage where ever they sit. The cleaning job may be given to a contractor and the contractor may be allowed to collect daily a nominal fee from these vendors. This will make the vendors also responsible to discourage public throwing wastes all around.Regards
