Chandigarh Ranked as 3rd Cleanest City in India | Swachh Survekshan 2018

Jharkhand has adjudged the best-performing state in the survey followed by Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh. While there were widespread hopes that the city would improve its 3rd rank from past year and bag the top spot, the recently revealed data has proved otherwise. The state capitals and Union territories are participants in this category, which does not include city municipalities which are not state capitals like Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC). In 2017, the scope of Swachh Survekshan was enlarged to cover 434 cities having a population of one lakh or more and Capital city of states/ UTs and Indore was awarded as cleanest city of India. 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. Vijayawada from neighbouring Andhra Pradesh was declared the cleanest city under the category of city with more than 10 lakh population. This meant that if acity has bagged an award in a category, the next best city gets the honour in another.

The Swachh Survekshan sanitation survey, which took the feedback of 37.66 lakh citizens across 4,203 municipality areas in the country, was conducted by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. It is the top 3 cities that matter the most in every year's Swachh Survekshan survey.

The names of the worst performing cities would be announced on the day the awards would be presented, Puri said. The survey was released by Union housing and urban affairs minister Hardeep Singh Puri in the national capital.
