Bhopal, the capital city of Madhya Pradesh, came a close second in the survey. "It was a conscious decision not to give more than one award to one city". Accordingly, the honour of the cleanest city in the country went to Indore followed by Bhopal and Chandigarh. Though things are better than they were when it was pushed to 29th spot past year, 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.

Mumbai has been declared the cleanest state capital in the Swachh Survekshan 2018, announced on Wednesday.

However, it is also to be noted that unlike the first two times when the city bagged the top slot in the country and dropped to the fifth spot previous year, this time Mysuru has to be satisfied with the medium city category top award.

Jharkhand was chosen as Best Performing State, followed by Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh.

The exercise was undertaken between 4th January to 10th March this year. The names of the worst performing cities would be announced on the day the awards would be presented, Hardeep Puri, Minister for Housing & Urban Affairs, said.
