MCD prepares for Swacchata Survekshan 2020 inspection

Tuesday, 14 January 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

A team from Central Government is likely to arrive in Dehradun on Tuesday for Swacchata Survekshan 2020. Considering this, the Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) has deployed an increased number of sanitation workers and vehicles to pick up the garbage and transport it to make the city cleaner.

Recently, the MCD also stepped up the work of night sweeping and awareness programmes about the significance of sanitation. According to municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey, “The survey by the central team remains secretive and no officer meets anyone from municipal corporation.

They examine and analyse the cleanliness of the city. We have instructed sanitation inspectors and supervisors to pay special attention in their area.

 Besides, more sanitation workers and vehicles have been deployed to step up the task of cleaning in the city. Sanitation workers are working in the night too.” As per the previous rankings of Swacchata Survekshan, Dehradun was ranked 267 in 2018 while the rank fell lower to 384 in 2019.

However, according to Mayor Sunil Uniyal Gama, “The ranking fell down in the past surveys because our Solid Waste Management Plant was not completely functional but the situation is different this time. Three hundred metric tonne garbage generated in the city is getting disposed of in the waste management plant situated in Sheeshambada.”
