The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has been ranked the cleanest small city in the Government's cleanliness survey 'Swachh Survekshan 2018'.  Around 1.5 per cent of the national Capital's 16.78 million residents live in the NDMC area.

The area was also declared the cleanest in the north based on its solid waste management, access to sanitation and other parameters of cleanliness, under the zone-wise Swachh Survekshan in 2017.

The results of Swachh Survekshan 2018, which aims to estimate the levels of cleanliness across cities in the country, were announced by Minister of State for Housing Hardeep Singh Puri today.This year's survey saw the participation of around 4,200 cities.

Indore emerged as the cleanest city, followed by Bhopal and Chandigarh. Jharkhand was adjudged the best performing state in the survey followed by Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh.

Compared to the previous surveys, this year's exercise allocated substantial weightage to the feedback from citizens.
