Haritha Keralam

Haritha Keralam is designed with a goal to improve the sanitation in the State. The schemes under this initiative include the following.

  • Waste management schemes will be implemented to clear out wastes from commercial and residential places by disposing of wastes to secure sites where people and the environment will not face any consequences.
  • Purification and filtration of the water bodies will be established.
  • Organic farming will be promoted since many chemical-based farming solutions are unsanitary and are considered to be hazardous to the crops.

These sanitation plans help in keeping the health of the people in the state. Moreover, this benefits the economy as farming becomes secure and more comfortable to handle.


Ardram is a health-oriented mission in Nava Kerala. The scheme is for the cleanliness of the State and to organise various waste management schemes. The developments of the purpose include the following.

  • There will be the construction of new hospitals by the Government that caters the needs of the poor residents.
  • New funding and assistance for the state’s poorest residents will be made available. The primary aim is to provide them with easy and affordable healthcare services.
  • New medical facilities will be developed to aid the production of the medicines. This ensures that people receive the necessary treatments and medications that are required for several medical conditions.

Life Scheme

The Life Scheme is one part of Nava Kerala Mission that targets on building homes for homeless people. This aids more than 4 lakh families around the state that do not have any house or an adequate amount of land. The State Government has estimated that at least Rs. 6000 crore has to be spent to implement this project successfully. The production of new houses and the reservation of land spaces for those houses will be more expensive, but this is very important for families who are looking to lead positive lives in the State.

Education Scheme

The fourth part of the scheme is for the education sector of the State. Through this, many public schools will be made available to the citizens bringing up Nobel teaching methodologies. The features of all these schools will meet international standards.
