Pune, 20th November 2021: Over the years, Swachh Survekshan (SS) has emerged as an effective tool for transforming the urban landscape. Despite the on-ground challenges posed by COVID-19, a team of over 2,000 assessors visited over 65,000 wards in a record time of 28 days. Maharashtra has successfully bagged a total of 92 awards, the highest by any State in this year’s Survekshan, followed by Chhattisgarh with 67 awards. 

Pune Mayor Murlidhar Mohol said, “The city of Pune has won the ‘Best Sustainable Big City’. Most importantly, last year, the city of Pune had to settle for 17th position in overall cleanliness, but this year, it has been ranked 5th in the country with great improvement. Heartiest congratulations to all the people of Pune, including those who are implementing and managing the cleanliness of the city.

All the clean survey awards received by the city of Pune are very important. On the one hand, we were facing the Corona Crisis, on the other hand, it is gratifying to be able to perform brilliantly at the national level by paying special attention to the cleanliness of the city.”
