The Swacch Survekshan-2018 assessed 4,203 urban local bodies and was organized by the ministry of housing and urban affairs (MoHUA), under the aegis of the Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban).

An independent agency appointed by the MoHUA conducted the on-field survey for Swacch Survekshan-2018 and the data for ranking of cities was collected from three sources including service level progress, direct observation and citizen’s feedback.

The service level progress verified if systems and processes were in place on ULBs to implement the Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) in the most efficient way. Direct observation verified and assessed general cleanliness in cities by making random field visits to different parts of the city and public conveniences including community/public toilets.

Citizen’s feedback was collected directly from the citizens and monitored performance of the Swachhata App. Cities having population of 1 lakh and more and capital cities were ranked at national level and cities with population of less than 1 lakh were ranked at zonal level – north, south, east, west and north east.

Based on performance in Swacch Survekshan-2018, awards will be conferred to 29 cities/cantonment boards at the national level, 20 cities at the zonal level and 3 states having the best performance in urban areas. Informed the ministry.
