Vijayawada cleanest city in India in one millon population category

The efforts of the District Administration, Mysuru City Corporation and the citizens paid off as the heritage city Mysuru topped the Cleanest City list among the Medium Cities category in the Swachh Survekshan-2018 rankings.

Shri Hardeep Puri, Minister for Housing & Urban Affairs has congratulated the winners of Swachh Survekshan 2018 while announcing the results at the National Media Centre here today.

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. The Swachh Bharat Survey was conducted in February this year.

Puri said that the names of the worst performing cities would be announced on the day the awards would be presented. New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has been declared as the cleanest city among municipal bodies with less than three lakh population, while Greater Mumbai was found to be the cleanest among all State capitals. "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. Compared to the previous surveys, this year's exercise allocated substantial weight to the feedback from citizens based on their daily experience. 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. 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. Based on the performance in Swacch Survekshan, 2018, it has been chose to confer awards 29 cities/ cantonment boards at National Level, 20 cities at Zonal Level and 3 states having the best performance in the urban areas.
