Safai Sena is a newer name for an older association. We came together as a group called RSSS, or Rashtriya Safai Seva Sangathan. However, we were frequently confused for another, better known organization with which we have no links. Besides, many members felt it was not a good name even otherwise. Therefore, we agreed upon another name. The RSSS began in 2001. Safai Sena registered itself in 2009, after over 2 years of struggling with the government, because our name was not initially acceptable to the Registrar of Societies.
