PM Modi and his team have started a battle under the campaign of Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan where every city of this country fought to be tagged as the cleanest city in India. The Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) started the “Swachh Survekshan” survey, which ranked cities on their cleanliness and other aspects like urban sanitation.

In the year 2016, 73 cities were ranked all across the country and this year too MoUD has initiated “Swachh Survekshan” 2017 which conducted a survey to rank 434 cities of India. 

Now to keep the track evaluation of every city, QCI- Quality Council of India is looking after it. QCI is an autonomous body established by Government of India in 1997 for Quality assurance in all spheres of activities including Governance.

Last year, Pune was ranked 11th in the number and this year the city has slipped off from last year’s position and is ranked 13th. Though the difference is of only 2, Pune has somehow managed to be in the top 20 but still needs to strive hard to be a better city.

Indore won the title of being the cleanest city in India whereas Gonda in Uttar Pradesh is the dirtiest city. There are total five parameters which help them to evaluate the cleanest city – waste collection, solid waste management, construction of toilets, sanitation strategies and behavior change communication. The rankings are also based on the data provided by municipal corporations, independent assessors and feedback from people.
