It is the 4th time that Indore has topped the survey list. Indore has also won title awards for three consecutive years in the Meteropolis category for the same. However, what makes this nomination special is the fact that Indore's Mhow Cantonment Board Area is the only cantonment area in the country to be included in the list. Besides Indore, 8 other cities of Madhya Pradesh have been listed including Bhopal, Jabalpur, Burhanpur, Ratlam, Sehore, Shahganj, and Kantafod.
Conducted under the purview of the Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban), the Swachh Survekshan (Sanitation Survey) is the largest urban sanitation and cleanliness survey in the world. It has managed to encourage and mobilise people, resources and authorities to be accountable for the cleanliness of their city- and prove that their district is the cleanest among all others present in the country. Every year, districts come up with new modules and practices to ensure that they are included in the list of this survey. This in turn creates active awareness among citizens, resulting in cleaner cities and positive behaviour changes towards cleaning, which is the primary purpose of this survey.
