Results and conclusions of the survey show that the top 10 clean cities of India in 2017 are Indore, Bhopal, Visakhapatnam, Surat, Mysuru, Tiruchirapally, New Delhi Municipal Council, Navi Mumbai, Tirupati and Vadodara.
The performance of these top 10 clean cities of India in sanitation surveys of 2016 and 2014 are presented in the following table.
|S.No||City||Rank in 2017 (434 AMRUT cities/towns surveyed)||Rank in 2016 (73 Million plus population cities and capitals surveyed)||Rank in 2014 (476 cities/towns surveyed)|
Six of the top 10 clean cities of 2017, namely Indore, Bhopal, Visakhapatnam, Surat, Tirupati and Vadodara have improved their sanitation rankings in 2017 over the 2016 and 2014 rankings.
The bottom 10 clean cities/towns of India in 2017 are Gonda (Uttar Pradesh) – 434, Bhusawal (Maharashtra) – 433, Bagaha (Bihar) – 432, Hardoi (Uttarakhand) – 431, Katihar (Bihar) – 430, Bahraich (Uttar Pradesh) – 429, Muktsar (Punjab) – 428, Abohar (Punjab) – 427, Shahjahanpur (Uttar Pradesh) – 426 and Khurja (Uttar Pradesh) – 425.
Four of the bottom 10 clean cities are from Uttar Pradesh, 2 each from Bihar and Punjab and 1 each from Uttarakhand and Maharashtra. These 10 cities were not surveyed in 2016.
A comparison of rankings of bottom 10 cities of 2017 with that of 2014:
|S.No||City/Town||2017 ranking||2014 ranking|
While Bagaha and Bahraich have improved their rankings from 2014, Shajahanpur stayed where it was while the other 7 have slipped from 2014.
The composition of the top and bottom 50 rankings: Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh account for 31 of the top 50 clean cities with 12 in Gujarat, 11 in MP and 8 in AP. Telangana and Tamil Nadu account for 4 cities each in top 50, followed by Maharashtra with 3.
Chandigarh, Chattisgarh, Delhi, HP, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Sikkim and UP account for one city each in top 50 clean cities of the country.
While 14 States and Union Territories find a place among the top 50 clean cities, competition is not so much for a place in bottom 50, with UP alone accounting for 25 of the bottom 50 towns.
Rajasthan and Punjab have 5 towns each in the bottom 50, followed by Maharashtra-2 and one each from Haryana, Karnataka and Lakshadweep.
Out of the 62 cities and towns surveyed in Uttar Pradesh in 2017, 41 of them figure among the bottom 100 cities/towns.
Surprises of 2017 Sanitation Survey: Jharkhand and Chattisgarh have emerged as the major success stories in Swachh Sarvekshan 2017.
While all the 9 cities/towns of Jharkhand surveyed in 2017 have substantially improved their rankings over that of 2016 and 2014, 7 of 8 in Chattisgarh have achieved this feat.
Comparison of Swachh rankings of cities and towns in Jharkhand:
|City/Town||2017 ranking among 434 cities/towns||2017 ranking among 72 million plus population cities/towns||2016 rankings of 73 million plus Cities/capitals Surveyed||2014 rankings of 476 cities/towns|
|Chas||41||Not applicable||Not applicable||371|
|Deogarh||102||NA||Not applicable||Not surveyed|
Comparison of swachh rankings of cities/towns in Chattisgarh:
|City/Town||2017 ranking||2017 ranking among 72 million plus cities||2016 ranking among 73 million plus cities surveyed||2014 ranking among 476 cities/towns surveyed|
|Ambikapur||15||Not applicable||Not applicable||464|
|Raigarh||104||Not applicable||Not applicable||294|
|Rajnandgaon||164||Not applicable||Not applicable||399|
So, while Gujarat, MP, Andhra Pradesh continued their good work scoring well in Sanitation Rankings of 2017, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh emerge as the major success stories given sanitation levels in 2016 and 2014 with substantial improvement.
How did Delhi fare over the years?
|Urban Local Body||2017 ranking among
|2017 ranking among 72 million-plus cities||2016 rankings of 73 million-plus population cities surveyed||2014 rankings of 476 cities/towns surveyed|
|Delhi Cant||172||Not applicable||Not applicable||14|
-NDMC and the three Municipal Corporations of East, South and North have significantly improved over 2014 Sanitation Rankings, Delhi Cantonment have reported substantial decline.
While East and South MCDs have improved over 2016 rankings, NDMC has slipped marginally.
