The Swachh Sarvekshan results of all municipal corporations across the country were declared on Wednesday, and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is not among the top three cities. It has, though, bagged the first position for Most Clean Capital City. The top three clean cities declared by the Union government are Indore, Bhopal and Chandigarh.
Last year BMC was at the 29th position. The survey was conducted for all state capitals and Mumbai was declared most clean capital city. Navi Mumbai has bagged the top position in solid waste management. The list for this year will be declared soon. Indore emerged as the cleanest city, followed by Bhopal and Chandigarh in the government's cleanliness survey.
The results of Swachh Survekshan 2018, which aims to estimate levels of cleanliness across cities in the country, were announced today by Minister of State for Housing Hardeep Singh Puri today.

Compared to the previous surveys, this year's exercise allocated substantial weightage to the feedback from citizens based on their daily experience.
Indore was the cleanest city last year as well but that survey was conducted only for around 430 cities. This time it was conducted for around 4,200 cities.
The names of the worst performing cities would be announced on the day the awards would be presented, Puri said.
