Indore is now a water-plus city in India. 

Madhya Pradesh`s Indore known as the cleanest city in India has now also been declared as the first Water Plus city in the country. 

The announcement was made by the central government on Wednesday under the Swachh Survekshan 2021. Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan lauded the city of Indore for setting an example for the whole nation in its "determination and dedication towards cleanliness."

"Heartiest congratulations to the citizens of Indore as it becomes the first SBM Water certified city under Swachh Survekshan 2021," Chouhan posted on Twitter. "Indore has been an example for the whole nation for its determination and dedication towards cleanliness. May it continue to bring glory to the state!" he added.

A Water Plus city certificate is provided to a city for maintaining cleanliness in rivers and drains under its administration. 

Getting declared as the water plus city needs some criteria to follow. 

Firstly, it must be ensured that the dirty water from the city does not go into any river or drain. Secondly, all public toilets in the city must be connected to sewer lines and must be cleaned. And finally, 30 per cent of the city`s sewer water has to be recycled and reused.
