In the previous year, Indore earned 200 points with the 7-Star Ranking and managed to outperform Surat by a narrow margin of only 50 points, securing the top position.

What Are Parameter To Declare a Cleanest City?

To determine the cleanest city of India, certain factors are considered in an annual survey called Swachh Survekshan. These factors include how well the city manages waste collection and transportation, whether it has proper methods for disposing of waste, if it is open defecation-free with sufficient toilets, and the overall sanitation infrastructure.

The survey also looks at citizen engagement, feedback, and the city’s efforts to involve the public in cleanliness initiatives. Other aspects include access to clean water, the coverage of sanitation facilities in households, innovative practices, and campaigns promoting behavioral change for cleanliness.
