Frequently Asked Questions
The Government of Himachal Pradesh has implemented a comprehensive strategy to address the sanitation challenges prevalent in rural areas. The primary focus of this strategy is to encourage and motivate rural communities to abandon the traditional practice of open defecation and adopt safe sanitation practices. As part of this initiative, the Maharishi Valmiki Sampoorn Swachata Puruskar (MVSSP) has been introduced.

The MVSSP is an annual competition that aims to identify and recognize the cleanest Gram Panchayat at various levels, including block, district, division, and state. The competition serves as a platform to evaluate the cleanliness and hygiene conditions maintained by Gram Panchayats. Factors such as waste management, sanitation infrastructure, and active community participation are taken into consideration during the evaluation process.

The winners of the MVSSP at the state and divisional levels are honored by the Honorable Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh during the Independence Day celebrations each year. Similarly, the winners at the district and block levels receive their prizes from senior dignitaries. This recognition serves as an incentive for Gram Panchayats to maintain high cleanliness standards and continue their efforts towards improved sanitation.
