Swachh Survekshan

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs conducts the “Swachh Survekshan” every year to rate cities/towns on cleanliness standards. With unprecedented participation of 4.2 crore citizens, Swachh Survekshan 2021 examined a total of 4320 cities, 62 cantonment boards, and 97 Ganga Towns. Swachh Survekshan 2021 also ensured that on-ground performance will be sustained.

In Assam, a total of 96 Urban Local Bodies took part in the cleanliness survey in order to maintain the advances made under the Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban (SBM-U).

Nine Towns of Assam that secured North East Zone Category in the Swachh Survekshan 2021

1. Tezpur: Cleanest City, 50K – 1 Lakh Population

2. Jorhat: Best Self-Sustainable City, 50K – 1 Lakh Population

3.  Bongaigaon: Best City in Innovation & Best Practices, 50K – 1 Lakh Population

It should be noted that the fact that the ULBs of Assam have been able to secure ranks in Swachh Survekshan three times in a row is a significant achievement for the state, and credit for this goes to the ULB authorities, citizens, Mission Directorate, and the Department of Housing and Urban Affairs, Assam.

In the fields of sanitation and solid waste management, the Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban, Assam, has made a considerable difference.

Under the Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban, Assam’s building of individual household latrines and community/public toilets contributed significantly to the state’s position as an Open Defecation State and to Swachh Survekshan awards.
