As a prelude to encouraging cities to improve urban sanitation, Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) had conducted a ‘Swachh Survekshan-2016’ survey for the rating of 73 cities in January 2016. In a bid to scale up the coverage of the ranking exercise and encourage towns and cities to actively implement mission initiatives in a timely and innovative manner, MoUD now proposes to conduct its second survey to rank 500 cities (with a population of 1 lakh and above) under Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban (SBM-U).
