Clean India was a dream seen by the Mahatma Gandhi regarding which he said that, “Sanitation is more important than Independence”. During his
time he was well aware of the poor and dirty
condition of the country that’s why he made various efforts to complete his dream however
could not be successful. As he dreamt of clean India a day, he said that both clean lines and sanitation are integral parts of healthy and peaceful living. Unfortunately, India became lack of cleanliness and sanitation even after 67 years of independence. 1) It is really very essential to eliminate the open defecation in India as well as making available toilets facility to everyone. 2) It is needed in India to convert the insanitary toilets into flushing toilets. 3) It is necessary in order to eradicate the manual scavenging system. 4) It is to implement the proper waste management through the scientific processes, hygienic disposal, reuse, and recycling of the municipal solid wastes. 5) It is to bring behavioral changes among Indian people regarding maintenance of personal hygiene and practice of healthy sanitation methods. 6) It is to create global awareness among common public living in rural areas and link it to the  public health.
 7) It is to support working bodies to design, execute and operate the waste disposal systems locally. 8) It is to bring private-sector participation to develop sanitary facilities all through the India 9) It is to make India a clean and green India. 10) It is necessary to improve the quality of life of people in rural areas.

 Until two years ago, Madhya
Pradesh’s largest and most populous city Indore painted a
dismal picture of cleanliness and sanitation, earning itself the 149th spot in the Swachhta survey in 2014. The ranking was enough to put the administration to shame. And there began the story of a great turnaround. A year later, in the same survey, Indore jumped to 25th position, recording multi-fold growth. But not many outside Indore noticed it. The cleanliness warriors of the city, which is also known as mini-Bombay for being business friendly, continued to work tirelessly. Cut to 2017, Union minister of housing and urban poverty alleviation Venkaiah Naidu on May 4 declared that Indore was ranked the cleanest city in India. The numerouno position took many by surprise, but it came after sustained efforts of Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC). The municipal corporation has a lot of first to its credit. Giving full leverage to its workers to deal with the menace of stray animals, the corporation was probably the first such body to have  brought down illegal dairies and cattle houses that were in a deplorable condition. Many other illegal structures across the city were razed. Prominent among those were the 5-km stretch from Kanadia to Telephone Nagar, dense Raj Mohalla to BadaGanpati area in old city, Mhow Naka to Tori Corner (from where the mayor belongs) and Malwa Mill. Fifty big  properties used as illegal cattle sheds were demolished, while 2000 EWS houses were allotted to
