  • To add vigor to its implementation, the GoI launched award based incentives scheme for fully sanitized and open defecation free Gram Panchayats, Blocks, Districts, and State called "Nirmal Gram Purashkar (NGP)" in October 2003 and gave away the first awards in 2005 as a component of its flagship scheme Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC).

  • NGP till 2011 was given by the Ministry of Drinking Water & Sanitation (MoDWS), GoI at all three levels of PRIs that is Gram Panchayat, Block Panchyat, and District Panchayat.

It has now been decided that with the transition to Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA), the selection of Gram Panchayat to awards NGP from the year 2012 shall be taken up by the States, while the selection of Blocks & District Panchayat shall continue to be with the Centre.
