Mr. Sanjay Kedar was appointed as the Chief Officer of Sinnar Municipal Council (SMC), Government of Maharashtra, in February 2020. Since then, he has been involved in the implementation and monitoring of all sanitation-related interventions the city has undertaken.
Sinnar is an industrial town in Maharashtra which was struggling with multiple challenges related to sanitation. Sinnar Municipal Council has played a pivotal role in planning and implementation of the Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) services in Sinnar with support from the Center for Water and Sanitation (CWAS), CRDF, CEPT University. This collaborative effort has resulted in a model which can make many towns and cities across the state Open Defecation Free + (ODF+) and ODF++ with their own funds.
