Six sub-category wise awards have also been introduced for the first time, with award money of Rs 20,000 per school. The system will generate the overall score and rating of schools on these categories automatically. The schools will be assessed through an online portal and mobile app in these sub-categories:

  • Water
  • Sanitation
  • Hand Washing with soap
  • Operation and Maintenance
  • Behaviour Change and Capacity Building
  • Preparedness and Response (the newly added category on COVID-19)

Schools have been awarded at the district, state and are now being awarded at the national level based on an internationally recognized five star rating system. Besides, every school will get a certificate of participation showing the category-wise scores and overall rating of the school.
