The agency will work on bettering the status of sanitation delivery of civic services participation of citizens besides creating awareness among residents.

According to PMC officials the bidding process has been initiated to hire the agency and so far three companies have shown interest. The private agency will be selected within a week and they will be given the task to prepare plans and ensure its execution to improve overall ranking of Patna in the Swachh Survekshan by working on all the parameters underlined by the Centre.
