Mangaluru is the best city in solid waste management

The cleanest state title was secured by Chhattisgarh followed by Maharashtra in the second place. Accordingly, the honour of the cleanest city in the country went to Indore followed by Bhopal and Chandigarh. Similarly, Ranchi has been adjudged the best capital and Kota in Rajasthan has been adjudged the best city in the citizen feedback category. This year, the survey has covered 4,203 cities, while in 2017 only 434 cities were surveyed. A total of 500 cities with more than 1 lakh population were ranked at a national level, while 3,541 cities with less than 1 lakh population will have State and Regional ranking.

However, it is also to be noted that unlike the first two times when the city bagged the top slot in the country and dropped to the fifth spot past year, this time Mysuru has to be satisfied with the medium city category top award.

"The on-field survey for Swachh Survekshan has been conducted by an independent agency and the data for ranking of the cities has been collected from three sources - service level progress, direct observation by random field visits, and.citizen feedback", explained an official.

The names of the worst performing cities would be announced on the day the awards would be presented, Puri said. Compared to the previous surveys, this year's exercise allocated substantial weight to the feedback from citizens based on their daily experience.

About 4,203 urban local bodies that impact a population of 40 crore citizens were assessed as part of the survey that was conducted between from January 4 to March 10, 2018.

The 2018 survey covered 4,203 such areas. "The survey was organized by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, under the aegis of the Swachh Bharat Mission", Puri said.

Though the civic body is happy as the city clinched the top position in the innovation category, the civic administration and office bearers were expecting the city to be at least in the top 20. The Municipal Council of New Delhi bagged the award for the cleanest among cities with a population of 1 lakh to 3 lakh.

Chandigarh has been declared the third cleanest city in the country.
