Criteria and different components used for the survey:

This survey was carried out by the quality council of India and it includes 434 cities. Different components are included in this survey and on the basis of those components, it has been decided that which city is clean and which one is dirtiest in all.

  • Solid waste management and open defecation status  carried 45 % marks
  • Citizen feedback- 30 %
  • Independent observation- 25 %

The reason for this steep decline in ranking:

Last year Chandigarh that has awarded by PM Modi because it got open defecation free status. But Chandigarh is unable to maintain it. According to Hindustan times reports, open defecation is again started in the city because of the bad condition of movable toilets in Chandigarh that was provided in colonies and villages. Hope ranking of this time will motivate Chandigarh Administration to work toward improving the ranking and match the past ranking.
