New Delhi: Like always Indore stood at the first position in a row for the sixth time in the Central government’s annual cleanliness survey, the results of which were announced Saturday.
At the Swacch Survekshan Awards 2022, MP was conferred as the best-performing state followed by CG and Maharashtra. The awards for the big achievement were handed over by President Droupadi Murmu.
The 7th edition of Swachh Survekshan was conducted to study the progress of the Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) and rank the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) based on various cleanliness and sanitation parameters. The Central govt. has launched this program under Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) to focus on the sustainability of initiatives and also encourage large-scale participation of citizens.
The Survekshan has evolved from being an assessment of 73 cities in 2016 to covering 4,354 cities this year. Every year, Swachh Survekshan is redesigned innovatively to ensure the process becomes more robust with focus on sustaining the behaviour change.
