Chandrapur district – Government Collaboration

Swachh machines provide an ideal solution for district level business opportunities which not only create jobs but also provide access to high quality sanitary napkins locally, thereby, reducing the cost of sanitary napkins. With the focus of Maharashtra Government to boost start-up and Government collaboration, a flagship program called MH start-up week was initiated in 2018. Saral Designs was a winner of the first ever MH start-up week in addition to winning NASSCOM organized Maharashtra’s most innovative start-up award by the then Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
