President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday, November 20, 2021, presented the Swachh Survekshan Awards 2021 organized by the Ministry of Housing Affairs in New Delhi.

Madhya Pradesh’s Indore for the record fifth time in a row bagged the country’s cleanest city title along with grabbing the first position in the Safaimitra Suraksha Challenge.

Under the Swachh Survekshan 2021, Surat in Gujarat and Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh clinched the second and third spot respectively in the cleanest cities’ list followed by Hapur and Rajkot.

Whereas, Maharashtra’s Vita bagged the cleanest city title under the category- with a population of less than one lakh. Followed by Lonavala and Saswad both from Maharashtra with second and third positions respectively.

Launched as a part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Swachh Survekshan is an annual survey of cleanliness, hygiene, and sanitation in cities and towns across India. A total of 4,320 cities participated in the 2021 survey, making it the world’s largest urban cleanliness survey.

Addressing the event, President Ram Nath Kovind highlighted the contribution of sanitation workers during the pandemic.
