Pvt sector has significant role in creating awareness on sanitation: Parekh
Private sector has a significant role to play in building sanitation infrastructure as well as creating awareness and bringing behavioural change among people, HDFC Chairman Deepak Parekh said.
Speaking on the Swachh Bharat Mission, he said the government has a five-year target from October 2014 to make India open defecation free.
"While it is a much-needed and mammoth task, we feel the private sector has a significant role to play, not just in building sanitation infrastructure, but also in creating awareness and behavioural change amongst people," he said.
