Swachh Survekshan 2018

As a prelude to encouraging cities to improve urban sanitation, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) conducted ‘Swachh Survekshan-2016’ survey for the rating of 73 cities in January 2016 followed by ‘Swachh Survekshan-2017’ conducted in January- February 2017 ranking 434 cities. In a bid to scale up the coverage of the ranking exercise and encourage cities to actively implement mission initiatives in a timely and innovative manner, MoHUA conducted its third survey 'Swachh Survekshan - 2018' covering 4203 Cities including 61 Cantonment Boards.

The 'Swachh Survekshan - 2018' ranking of the Cities, separately done for those with a population of one lakh or more (national ranking) and those below one lakh (state and zonal rankings), was based on assessment of progress from January 2017 till December 2017 (extended till January 2018 for Cantonment Boards only) under Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban (SBM-U).

The objective of the survey is to encourage large scale citizen participation and create awareness amongst all sections of society about the importance of working together towards making towns and cities a better place to live in. Additionally, the survey also intends to foster a spirit of healthy competition among towns and cities to improve their service delivery to citizens, towards creating cleaner cities.

In order for cities to reap the maximum developmental benefits from the survey, concerted efforts are being taken to strengthen the capacities of the cities to understand the modalities and spirit of the survey. In addition to giving towns and cities more time to prepare for the survey, there will be intensive interactions with ULBs to familiarize them with the survey methodology, survey process and output indicators, and also clarifying their expectations from the survey.
