Amid high enthusiasm and overwhelming response from both exhibitors as well as visitors the five expos concluded on a high note, taking another step towards the fulfilment of Clean India. The enthusiasm could best be described through the eyes of an 82 years old physically challenged visitor N.Boriah, Proprieter of a textile mill who travelled from Bangalore to Mumbai visited each and every stall noticing the developments occurred in the last 60 years and appreciating the latest eco-friendly technologies showcased at the Expos. “We have been using machines that clean at some environmental cost such as carbon emission. However, I am amazed to see the new innovations that are 100% eco-friendly. This will help transform the cleaning in true sense,” said Boriah.

The 3-day event filled with sellers-buyers meets, knowledge sharing sessions, entertainment, recognition and networking saw the convergence of Municipal Commissioners, Mayors, CXOs, housekeeping heads, purchase managers, GMs and operational heads across the segments, majorly hospitality, pharmaceutical, healthcare, Railways and food processing.

The Expos marked the launch of many game changing technologies & innovations that might redefine the cleaning, hygiene and sanitation market of India. To name a few, while the B-Dreams’ patented world’s cheapest P-blocks addresses the sanitary issues of the country at large, Clean India Award winner Gala’s broom has the potential to redefine the ‘brooming’. Tanishka Products’ Micro-encapsulation technology and Arrow coated’ film technology takes the fragrance and dosing system to a whole new level.

The expos bridged not only the gap between demand & supply, but also was a journey towards the fulfilment of vision of Clean India to an inflexion point which connects the line to Clean India 2019. “The Clean India Technology Week was a programme not limited to just to B2B convergence, but a programme to transform India into a clean & healthy India that empowers society and economy, said the Surjeet Singh Chauhan, Chairman-Bhopal Municipal Corporation

Addressing the press Jayaram Nair, Chairman-Virtual Info Systems Pvt. Ltd, organiser of Clean India Technology Week, said, “Showcasing the latest developments in Cleaning, Clean India Technology Week is nothing less than a celebration for the Industry.

Setting up a commercial laundry is not just simply buying a washing machine. You need to buy a laundry equipment which is energy efficient, reduces manpower and is safe for operations. The technology is already evolved and available in the European and American markets. It is only a matter of adopting that technology and implementing them in India. At present, the market is little immature but is slated for exclusive growth in the near future. If you look at the market dynamics today, there is a lot of interest that is being generated from various quarters which were not even expected. Laundry Care Expo is just the beginning…

Association’s Speak


Dr. Gautam Kothari

Madhya Pradesh’s biggest industrial belt comprising of Pithampur, Kheda, SEZ and other areas, a  30,000 crore investment zone, comprises of India’s largest automobile, pharma and textile companies. Cleaning is an essential part of any manufacturing facility and we believe that through the forth coming Clean India Show in Indore, there will be widespread awareness about cleaning technology in this segment.

This is the first time that a cleaning show is being organised on a big scale in this city. This initiative by Clean India is a welcome move. All the manufacturing industries should take advantage of this opportunity.

Dr. Gautam Kothari,President, Pithampur Audhyogik Sangathan


Dr. S.B.Rijhwani

The Clean India Show being organised at Indore will definitely benefit the members, as they will come to know about the various cleaning technologies. Cleaning is essential for any manufacturing, especially for the pharma segment. Most of the pharma companies are definitely using cleaning compared to cleaning equipment. Smaller companies, with space constraints, would not be in a position to opt for mechanized cleaning. However, I am sure semi-automated small machines would interest them at the Clean India Show.

Dr. S.B.Rijhwani,President, Indian Pharmaceutical Association, M.P. State Branch, Indore and Vice President (Industrial Pharmacy Division), IPA


Himanshu Shah

The Clean India Show going to be held on April 16 & 17 shall be very much useful for Pharmaceutical Industry in educating them on for cleaning & maintenance hygiene
condition, environmental care, floor cleaning, de-dusting mechanisms, contamination, clean room & sterilization. This show will definitely help to join the hands with Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Himanshu Shah,Hon. Gen. Secretary, M.P. Small Scale Drug Manufacturers’ Association



Cleaning is the need of the hour, more so in the industrial segment. Clean India Show 2015 will help us get solutions for pollution and hygiene, which is essential for our industrial zone. We wish the organisers of the Show the very best and we look forward to it.”

R.S. Kharb President, Govindpura Industries Association



Live Budget Discussion

  • Well attended by over 200 leading industrialists
  • Industries hail Clean India Show 2015 at Indore
  • Exclusive coverage in over 15 leading newspapers and news channels

Clean India Journal joined hands with Association of Industries Madhya Pradesh (AIMP) in organizing a live budget discussion at Fortune Landmark hotel in Indore on February 28 and brought the leaders from various industries in Madhya Pradesh, including Indore and nearby industrial clusters.

Launching the Clean India Show 2015 at the meet, which was attended by over 200 leading industrial houses, Clean India Journal in an informative presentation and interactive session emphasized the need for including cleaning as a part of every corporate budget plan. Industries hailed the forthcoming Clean India Show 2015 being organised for the first time in Indore at the Brilliant Convention Centre on April 16 and 17.

When the Central Government has earmarked a huge sum for cleanliness & hygiene and public health, it is time each industrial house/corporate house set aside a fixed amount for maintenance and facility management. Clean India Journal’s  presentation touched upon the fact that a small amount for scientific cleaning will add to employee productivity and increase the bottom line manifold.

What is important is to understand the specific needs: dust control, machinery cleaning, concrete floor cleaning and polishing, best maintenance practices in food processing and drug manufacturing, high pressure jet cleaning for deep stains, etc.

The event provided the right platform for spreading awareness about the Clean India Show and about finding the right cleaning solutions for a variety of cleaning needs.


The event holds extensive significance, as the concept of mechanised cleaning in industrial facilities and their benefits are not yet fully understood in the region.

Many industries have come forward with their specific needs to Clean India Journal and are looking forward to solutions at the Clean India Show.
