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.

In the field of education ,
*I suggest to keep text books simple and concept based than content based .
*The texts are too heavy with content and no room for execution of NEP 2020
* History text has to be more indegineous with our ancient rich knowledge of India .As our history is not just starting from prehistory history mediaeval and modern
* Upto class 5 no text should be ther for students only material for trs and they prepare apt learning sheets for all and get to hands on experience
For all these schools should provide free hand for tra to execute the learning ground for ata in the class

Consider eliminating your use of single-use plastic and adopting eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives. Simple things like using reusable grocery bags, glass coffee cups and reusable straws can make a difference long-term. It’s important to note that while these small changes can reduce plastic waste, these alternatives also carry their own footprint.
While plastic is the leading culprit causing harm to our seas, there are many other harmful products we use daily that contribute to ocean pollution. Many cosmetic products have harmful and toxic chemicals that cause damage to our oceans. For example, marine-toxic chemicals, like oxybenzone and octinoxate, are found in most sunscreens. Any ingredients affecting our marine life can be washed off when swimming in the sea or during a shower and passed out into sewage, eventually reaching the ocean. Do your research to discover what ingredients to avoid. Also , pick up your trash!

Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji the cleaning process of the beach cannot be done in one day.. Because in each and every day thousands of people are gathering. The unaware of the pollution of the waste disturb the sea

The tourism also another main cause for the waste pollution.The public must come forward to self reliance not to damage the beach by waste material. Then only the beach will be cleaned..
Some of the beaches I visited in southern part of India don't have a visibility about any mission towards Swach Bharat or clean the beach campaign group accessibility. My suggestion is people are interested and would like to take part in this program. So, display the hoarding or non tearable posters about this program, point of contacts and daily entry of the people volunteering to clean the beach. End of the month, the government of India can publish the names for participating in this program. This gives a much needed visibility,
