Hard work of Indore Municipal Corporation and citizens of Indore has added a feather in its cap by becoming The Cleanest City of India according to the results of Swachh Survekshan 2018.
It is a proud moment for every Indori that it became the cleanest city for the second time. The results for Swachh Survekshan 2018 were announced on May 16, Wednesday, by Minister of State for Housing and Urban Planning, Hardeep Singh Puri.
Even bigger good news is that last year Indore won against 430 cities, but this time it became the cleanest among 4,200 cities.
The best part is that these cities have become the top two for the second consecutive year. Following them is Chandigarh from Punjab which is ranked as the third cleanest city.
According to The Times of India, an official said, "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 the third was citizen feedback."
Can you imagine that 37.66 lakh citizens, which makes for 4,203 municipal areas, gave their feedback for the Swachh Survekshan survey?
Talking about the state, Jharkhand became the best-performing state, followed by Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh.
New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) became the cleanest city with less than three lakh population. Greater Mumbai, on the other hand, got the title of being the cleanest among all state capitals.
Among big cities, with more than one million population, Vijayawada was awarded the cleanest city and among cities with population of three lakh to one million, Mysuru is the cleanest.
That's all, folks.
Yes, you may have loads of poha and jalebis. But don't forget to put the waste in the dustbin.
Cheers Indoris! Indore is No. 1.
