The Salt March, also known as the Salt Satyagraha began with the Dandi March on March 12, 1930, and was an important part of the Indian independence movement, as a campaign of tax resistance and nonviolent protest against the British salt monopoly in India, and triggered the wider Civil Disobedience Movement. Mohandas Mahatma Gandhi ji started the Dandi march from Sabarmati Ashram near Ahmedabad, Gujrat to the sea coast near the village of Dandi. As he continued on this 24 day, 390 km march, to produce salt without paying the tax, growing numbers of Indians joined him along the way.

The campaign had a significant effect on changing world and British attitudes toward Indian independence and caused large numbers of Indians to join the fight for the first time.
