An annual calendar is pre-circulated among the Ministries to help them plan for the Pakhwada activities.

The Ministries observing Swachhata Pakhwada are monitored closely using online monitoring system of Swachhata Samiksha where action plans, images, videos related to Swachhata activities are uploaded and shared.
