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.

there should be some kind if paid tickets towards the entry area of beaches where people are allowed to enter without any eatables and drinking material.I personally visited and find it very necessary to maintain cleanliness at beach sides.People themselves should be very careful to keep up the beauty of a beach.people throw cold drink cans,chips wrappers even rags of dirty clothes and garbage at beach sides which make the water dirty and effects the natural beauty of beaches.There should be only few entrances to a beach with psid ticket.
2.Street wanders should not be allowed to sell their eatables or any kind of material at the beach.They should be alloted with some particular space by the government to sell their food and strictely warned to use Dustbins to throw the disposables and other kind of garbage in those dustbins.
3.The concerned Municipality of areas near the beach side should allot duty of employees to clear the dustbins of beach areas daily even on holidays also

The municipality or the agencies should not collect money for waste disposal from the public but the government should form a company exclusively for waste collection and disposal. Every product sold through shops or supermarkets should collect a cess which should go to the waste disposal company. Government should acquire a bigger estate or use an Island in the sea for building high-tech waste disposal facilities because the construction of any waste disposal company in a densely populated area will invite public anger. There should be a toll-free number and a call center for the public to inform about any garbage collection and failure of the facilities provided by the new company. Until we successfully implement the project all the existing facilities and their funding should not be stopped. Gradually if the new facility workout properly the government can hand over the existing facilities to the new company.

Pick a Beach - Start by doing a little research into beach areas that will need a little more help. This could be a busier beach with lots of traffic or one out of the way that people often forget is there, making it a hot spot for late-night group bonfires.

Plan a Time - The best time to do a beach cleanup is after a holiday or long weekend when loitering will be at its peak. Also, you may want to go first thing in the morning, before more visitors arrive, or you’ll be picking up around relaxing guests.

Schedule the Cleanup - Use a sign up to organize your group and make sure everyone knows where and when to meet.

as we know that most of the garbage on beaches came from shops and tourists we need to think that how we can change the mindset of people towards cleaning of public places.so, according to me most of the persons in this world take things for granted until they pay for it. I think that there should be a fine for throwing garbage at public places like beaches and it should be compulsory for the vendors or shopkeeper to keep a bin in their shops and encourage tourists to throw garbage in that. That's what my suggestion is hope it helps .
Regards

Awareness is to be created among the public to keep the beach and the consequences of sea pollution
Efforts are to be made at taluk level and the area need to be earmarked. A responsible person is the coordinator for that area. Every year the best taluk may be given prizes
heavy penalty may be imposed to the defaulters
proper waste management is necessary

Beaches are dirty because of non-biodegradable material, 90% of which is plastic, being discarded by the people living along or near the coastline. Today Oceans and seas are saddled with huge amount of plastic which is a cause of concern in many countries. My proposal is to use this plastic to make plastic bricks or ecobricks which can be used to make low cost, little load bearing structures like boundary walls, shelters, railings, benches etc. This way we will not only be able to clean the beaches but will be able to dispose this plastic waste in a better way, instead of shifting from sea to land. For the purpose, NGOs can be employed who buy these ecobricks from ragpickers and use them for making non-load bearing structures. This will also give a source of income to ragpickers.
