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.

note: My suggestion is in the attachment, brief provided in the comment here.
We have always been fascinated by the crystal clear water and the cleanliness we observe in the international beach destinations. People have associated popular beaches in India to be dirty and not up to the mark. However, I think by implementing certain policies and methodologies we can be better or atleast near to the cleanliness of international tourist destinations. The littering activities not only spoil the look of the beach but are also dangerous to the flora and fauna. I have prepared a simple beach cleaning framework to address at high level. (P.S., Could not put the whole content due to word limitation in the comment itself). As part of the framework, it offers some steps to tackle the problem. 

Cleaning starts with a 2 fold approach; A) Identify cost and effort, B) Implement initiatives

Over the last few decades, plastic has become an essential part of our everyday lives. From grocery bags to toys and bottles, plastic is one of the most used materials to date. However, this material is unfortunately causing a great deal of harm to ocean life too.By 2050, it is predicted that we will have more plastic in our oceans than fish. While this problem isn’t going away any time soon, scientists have been working to create solutions that can slowly start to clean up our oceans and put an end to this major issue. Here are just some of the techniques being used.Switch to plastic-free alternativesConsider 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.Avoid ocean-harming productsWhil
