The relay saw participation of over 991 participants including members of XLRI and residents of Jamshedpur. It lasted for nearly four-and-half hours. The institute said, "The Guinness World Records authorities in London accredited this endeavor by students for the most number of participants in a hand washing relay in February after a scrutiny of submitted evidences. The XLRI has beaten a record formerly created in Sri Lanka by 650 participants."

Father E. Abraham, director, XLRI, said, "We congratulate our team MAXI for creating this record. This was a noble initiative entirely conceptualized by our students to spread awareness for Clean India movement."
