Indore has bagged title of cleanest city in India followed by Bhopal and Chandigarh

Swachh Survekshan 2018 results Indore the cleanest city in India Bhopal grabs second position

Hyderabad was ranked India's best capital city for solid waste management by the Swachh Survekshan 2018 survey. Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Puri announced the winners of Swachhata Survekshan 2018 in Delhi on Wednesday.

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.

If you are wondering which are the "worst-performing cities", in terms of cleanliness, then you have to wait for a while. The survey was conducted for all state capitals and Mumbai was declared most clean capital city. Though things are better than they were when it was pushed to 29th spot previous year, the hope is that the authorities as well as citizens will not get carried away by the latest award for the city but focus unrelentingly on making it genuinely clean.

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. This time, BMC along with an NGO "Sanidhya" had undertaken several unique initiatives just because of which the city has stood second across the country. The total number of interactions on the Swachhata app by citizens were around 1.18 crore.

According to the Swachchh Survekshan 2018, Vijayawada is the cleanest among big cities having more than 10 lakh population, while Mysuru has emerged as the cleanest among cities with population of three lakh to 10 lakh. Similar to last year's survey, the results for Swachchh Survekshan 2018 involved data submitted by civic bodies on cleanliness and sanitation, as well as feedback from the citizens. The city which has a population between 5-10 lakh comes in medium city section.

The survey covered only 73 municipal areas with populations above one lakh in 2016, and in 2017, grew to cover 434 municipal areas with one lakh plus population. Several chaupals were organised across the city for the goal where the Mayor interacted with residents and appealed them to keep their surroundings clean.
