Chandigarh, Indore, Bhopal Win India's Cleanest Cities Award

Navi Mumbai won the award for being India's best in solid waste management among cities with a population of over 10 lakh.

Indore was the cleanest city past year as well but that survey was conducted only for around 430 cities. Chandigarh came in at rank 3 in the Swachh Survekshan 2018 survey, moving up from the rank 11 in 2017. While Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) bagged the award for waste management, which includes segregation of waste and transportation from household to Jawaharnagar dumping yard and recycling it, the rank of the city for cleanliness has not been released yet. The Minister also took to Twitter to congratulate all of the winners and applauded them for their commitment to keeping the country clean adding the importance of citizen contribution in maintaining the cleanliness in our cities.

The Swachh Survekshan 2018, which was organized by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), under the aegis of the Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) assessed 4,203 Urban Local Bodies (ULBs).

The Swachh Survekshan 2018 Awards were announced by Union Minister of State (Independent charge) Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri in New Delhi on Wednesday. The survey rated Indore and Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh as India's cleanest and second cleanest cities.

Indore was the cleanest city past year as well but that survey was conducted only for around 430 cities.

The total marks for the contest was 4,000 with 70 marks allotted for innovation. The civic body had focused on ODF status for which along with public toilets, modular toilets were also placed across the city. The city which has a population between 5-10 lakh comes in medium city section. "City getting an award implies the plight of rest of the country". The city is far from being Swacch in the real sense of the term, the award notwithstanding. This year, the survey has covered 4,203 cities, while in 2017 only 434 cities were surveyed.
