In the survey, Jharkhand has been adjudged as the best performing state, followed by Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh, said a statement by Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs. The top three clean cities declared by the Union government are Indore, Bhopal and Chandigarh. Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad found a special mention as the fastest moving big city of Swachh Survekshan 2018, rising from rank 351 in 2017 to its current rank of 36. Though things are better than they were when it was pushed to 29th spot a year ago, the hope is that the authorities as well as citizens will not get carried away by the latest award for the city but focus unrelentingly on making it genuinely clean. While Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) bagged the award for waste management, which includes segregation of waste and transportation from household to Jawaharnagar dumping yard and recycling it, the rank of the city for cleanliness has not been released yet. The data for ranking of cities was collected from three sources including service level progress, direct observation and citizen's feedback.

If you are wondering which are the "worst-performing cities", in terms of cleanliness, then you have to wait for a while.

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.

The exercise was undertaken between 4th January to 10th March this year.
