Indore Ranked as Cleanest City For Second Time Under Swachh Bharat Mission

Contrary to the expectations and much to the disappointment of the denizens of the city, port city Vizag has failed to maintain its ranking in the Swachh Survekshan for 2018.

In the Central government's cleanliness survey, Indore today emerged as the cleanest city, followed by Bhopal and Chandigarh.

This time, the Union Ministry of Urban Development survey was conducted in 4,200 cities, covering a population of 40 crore. Mayor Alok Sharma, Municipal Commissioner Priyanka Das and corporators celebrated the feat as the city has been ranked second only to Indore in the cleanliness survey of 2018 which was conducted by the Union Government.

Based on the survey, it was made a decision to confer awards on 29 cities and cantonment boards at the national level, 20 cities at the zonal level and three states for Best Performance in Urban Areas, he said. Navi Mumbai won the award for being India's best in solid waste management among cities with a population of over 10 lakh.

This year's survey saw the participation of around 4,200 cities. While Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao's constituency Siddipet was declared the cleanest city in the south zone, Bod Uppal was declared the best city in citizens' feedback and Peerzadiguda was declared the best city in innovation and best practices.
