The Deputy Director Br. Jose K. was the chief guest. The cleanup drive started after the flag hoisting ceremony. The whole area was divided into four zones such as main entrance, the play ground, the workshop area and the parking area. The four NSS volunteers namely Shruthi Thumar, Gaurang Date, Pranav Lohare and Vikram Kudva took up the responsibility of coordinating the cleanup. Gloves and masks were distributed to the volunteers and they set out for cleaning their respective zones. The major task was to weed out the weeds and for many of the volunteers, it was first time experience. The weeds collected were dumped under the coconut trees to decompose and to be turned into manure. They also collected the plastic bags, plastic bottles, glass bottles and pieces from the premises, especially from the workshop area. This was placed in the municipal garbage bins.
