Based on the survey, it was chose to confer awards on 29 cities and cantonment boards at the national level, 20 cities at the zonal level and three states for Best Performance in Urban Areas, he said.

Indore is India's cleanest cities

While state's Vijayawada stood as the cleanest city in the one million population category, Tirupati won the best city award in the solid waste management category.

Mayor had repeatedly said that the city will remain second to none this time and all efforts to grab the first position in cleanliness podium were made this time. The names of the worst performing cities would be announced on the day the awards would be presented, Hardeep Puri, Minister for Housing & Urban Affairs, said.

Indore and Bhopal have retained their positions as the top two cleanest cities for the second consecutive year and Chandigarh has been ranked as the third cleanest city.

Focussing on open defecation free status, civic body constructed public toilets and place modular toilets across the city. This year, 35% weightage was given to citizen feedback, 30% weightage to direct observation and 45 % percent weightage has been given to service level progress. Garbage collection was one such factor. The results of Swachh Survekshan 2018, aims to estimate levels of cleanliness across cities in the country.
