Speaking on the successful completion of the first edition of WasTe and SaniTech India, Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, ” In today’s Indian landscape, waste and sanitation services require rapid augmentation amidst generation of colossal municipal, hazardous, e-waste and bio-medical waste. With only 40 per cent of Indians having access to improved sanitation facilities and clean water, waste and sanitation services in India remain meagre leading to significant health costs. UBM India’s objective for launching WasTe and SaniTech India was to highlight these facts and the required novel and practical solutions, based on innovation and technology to align with our Honourable Prime Minister’s vision andthe national flagship programme of the Central government, Swacch Bharat Abhiyan. We would also like to thank the Ministry of Urban Development, and the Swachh Bharat Mission for showing their unstinting support in our endeavour.
