He has successfully implemented ‘Sant Gadgebaba Swachhata Abhiyan’ and ‘Paryavaranpurak Gaon’ schemes as a government officer. When he was Collector of Nadurbar district, sudden heavy rains caused floods and the whole village got affected. He himself worked hard on the ground level with people’s participation and helped the villagers to come out of that natural calamity. That village is now known as ‘Mallinath Nagar’ by his name.
