NDMC ranked cleanest small city in cleanliness survey

In 2016, Swachh Survekshan was conducted in 73 cities having a population of one million or more and capital city of States/ UTs and Mysore had bagged the award of being the cleanest city of India.

Besides the city winning in the best capital category, under the south zonal awards three cities from Telangana - Siddipet, Bod Uppal and Peerzadiguda also found a mention. Indore, Bhopal and Chandigarh were declared the cleanest cities. Chandigarh has been ranked as the third cleanest city in the Swachchh Survekshan 2018, moving up from Rank 11 in 2017. The union government's results for the cleanliness survey for the current year were out on Wednesday.

Indore in Madhya Pradesh is India's cleanest city. Each city was rated only for one award. The names of the worst performing cities would be announced on the day the awards would be presented, Hardeep Puri, Minister for Housing & Urban Affairs, said. "We thank the staff and citizens for their cooperation in keeping the city clean and giving positive feedback during the survey organised by the MoHUA", Municipal Commissioner J Nivas told TNIE.

The Swachh Survekshan 2018 is the first pan Indian exercise assessing cleanliness in urban India, and surveyed a total of 4,203 cities from January 4 to March 10, 2018, covering all the 4,041 Indian cities that have a population of 40 crore. Indore was the cleanest city previous year as well but that survey was conducted only for around 430 cities. There's no doubt in the fact that our city handsome Chandigarh is also one of the cleanest city in the country as per 2018 survey by bagging the 3rd spot.

Apart from introducing GPS-enabled wrist watches for sanitary workers, the NMC had constructed over 1,000 public toilets. It is the top 3 cities that matter the most in every year's Swachh Survekshan survey.

Compared with the 2017 survey of 434 cities, the scope of this year's survey was increased manifold, said the minister, adding that feedback from 37.66 lakh citizen was collected and 53.58 lakh Swachhata Apps downloaded. The civic body has scored full marks under this category too. According to the officer, the central government is yet to release the full list.

On the establishment front, more staff was recruited for garbage collection, new vehicles have been purchased and dumping of garbage at designated spots has been disallowed. The city is far from being Swacch in the real sense of the term, the award notwithstanding.

Swachh Survekshan aims to estimate levels of cleanliness across cities in the country.
