Swachh Bharat Mission has gained quite a momentum in the past two years. The NDA government’s flagship campaign aims at covering 1.04 crore households, providing 250,000 community toilets, 260,000 public toilets, and a solid waste management facility in each town. Covering 4,401 towns over a period of five years, the mission’s main objectives have been elimination of open defecation, conversion of unsanitary toilets to pour flush toilets, eradication of manual scavenging, municipal solid waste management and bringing about a behavioural change in people regarding healthy sanitation practices.

In order to encourage cities to be a part of the Clean India initiative, the Swachh Survekshan was launched in 2015. Under the Swachh Survekshan 2016, 73 cities were evaluated and Mysore was ranked on top followed by Chandigarh. In a bid to scale up the coverage of this ranking exercise, the Swachh Survekshan 2017 has been launched. The survey, which will rank 500 cities/towns with a population of 100,000 and above, will be conducted in January 2017.
