The Deputy Commissioner of Jorhat, Shri Virendra Mittal and his team of officials visited Kaziranga University on the 17th of February and enlightened us with his talk on the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and his unique initiative called 'Daan Toilet'.

Virendra Mittal, a 2007 batch IAS officer, hails from Jaipur, Rajasthan. He has been posted in Jorhat since 2016. His successful endeavour is called 'Daan Toilet' wherein toilets can be donated to those households that still follow open defecation. This is to make the country open defecation free by October 2nd 2019, as a fitting tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary. The Daan Toilet initiative has managed to donate more than 250 toilets, by raising close to 50 lakh.
