According to officials, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between IMC and Rau Nagar Parishad for this mentorship program.


Rau generates about 13 metric tonnes of solid waste every day!

In an attempt to further its Swachh Mission beyond its city limits, Indore is now venturing out to help civic bodies of other cities of Madhya Pradesh with their sanitation services. As per the commissioner of IMC, the civic body has taken the task of providing all along with hand-holding support to at least one local body of the state.
