Aspirations of repeating history 'again'

The Swachh Survekshan takes into consideration multiple criteria like these, while assessing the performance of the cities.

Multiple interventions to enhance Indore's beauty


Indore has witnessed a string of interventions in the recent past, that have amplified its beauty. The drains in the city have been cleaned while nets and saplings have been planted alongside, to enhance their appearance. Additionally, the city administration has constructed a number of public toilets.

To make sure that people do not litter waste on the roads from moving cars, IMC has also installed a distribution point at Palasia intersection where car dustbins, eco-friendly straws, cloth bags, containers for making compost will be available on rent-basis. Not only have the parks across the city been revamped but the civic body has also established an 'eco mart' for storing plastic products that can be recycled.

With the aforesaid steps, the Indore Municipal Corporation has checked all boxes included in the Sawchh Survekshan. Through its achievements in the past, Indore has become a source of inspiration for all other cities. The city is hopeful about its victory this year too.
