The Swachh Survekshan Awards, conferred by the President of India on January 11, 2024, celebrate outstanding urban sanitation and cleanliness achievements in India. Organized by the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs, these awards recognized cities and states excelling in various sanitation aspects. Indore and Surat were jointly declared the cleanest cities, with several other awards distributed across different categories. The awards, part of the Swachh Bharat Mission, encourage cities to enhance service delivery, focus on sustainable waste management, and ensure public participation. However, challenges include varying city rankings and ensuring equitable participation in sanitation initiatives.
