Cleanest Cities in India, Survey Criteria 2017

What makes Indore & Bhopal top the list and Mumbai to be at 29th position is the criteria of assessment. Interestingly, the survey was carried out in 400+ cities at a pan India level with considering at least views from 72% of the population from each. The rankings are done based on judgements made on the following listed criteria that take into account in assigning marks to a particular city of India as clean: (Swachh Survekshan 2017 Survey)

  • Urban Sanitation
  • Waste collection, sweeping and transportation management system
  • Processing and Disposal of Waste
  • Toilets
  • Information and education of public
  • Behavioural change among locals

Cleanest Cities in India in 2017, Areas of Assessment

The final marks for Swachh Survekshan Survey 2017 were calculated by incorporating individual marks of three areas by assigning fixed weightages to each for the sake of transparency and accountability. The three governing areas are:

  1. Data procured by Municipal Body of the area carrying around 900 marks
  2. Data Collection via personal and direct observations and assessments carried out independently carrying 500 marks
  3. Collection of Feedback from local citizens carrying 600 marks
  4. Finally, combining all of the above to generate marks and ranks

After all this, what we know of is that “Swachh Bharat” launch was not an eye-wash. Not restricting themselves merely on papers, the groundwork has been done, the base has been set, foundations have been laid and what we see now are the quality checks and rankings incorporating a healthy fight among cities battling to be No. 1 to be the cleanest city of all in India year by year. Synonymous to a painting competition in a school wherein little kids storm their minds to get their creativity out to be ranked as No. 1 in Swachh Survekshan 2017 Survey.

No worries!!! Fostering healthy competition between cities to compete against one another to get top ranking in being the “cleanest city of India”, the survey aimed at judging the cities on various criteria, big or small , weightages had been assigned to all such criteria finally contributing to the overall marking and ranking system of a particular city in the list of “cleanest cities of India.”
