Mysuru cleanest, Dhanbad dirtiest in survey of cities

Urban Development Ministry

Karnataka’s Mysuru has retained its position as the cleanest among all state capitals and cities with a million-plus population. Dhanbad is the dirtiest city in the country and Jharkhand’s smart city-entry Ranchi figures in the bottom 12 of the Swachh Survekshan list released by the Government on Monday.

The Union Urban Development Ministry had conducted a survey of 73 cities to measure the impact of the Swachh Bharat Mission and come up with the SwachhSarvekshan list.

The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) area has been ranked fourth in the list while Prime Minister Modi’s constituency Varanasi occupies the 65th slot.

The survey covered areas only under municipal bodies. For example, in Delhi, four municipal areas were ranked separately.

While two cities each from Gujarat (Rajkot and Surat) and Maharashtra (Greater Mumbai and Pimpri Chinchwad) are in the `Top 10′, a maximum of three cities from Uttar Pradesh -Varanasi, Meerut and Ghaziabad -are among the worst 10. Visakhapatnam, Surat, Rajkot and Gangtok improved their ranks to break into the `Top 10′ in this year’s survey.


In case of Delhi, South and North Delhi Municipal Corporations improved their ranking from 47 to 39 and 47 to 43 respectively; the position of East Delhi Municipal Corporation deteriorated from 47 in 2014 to 52 this year.

Among the biggest losers are Chennai, Nasik and Navi Mumbai. The Tamil Nadu capital ranked 37 in comparison to its fourth position in 2014. Nasik ended at 31 against its earlier ranking of eight. Bengaluru, which ranked as the cleanest state capital in 2014, slipped to 38th position in 2015.
