Vizag in the top race for Swachh Surveskshan

With more than 71000 recorded feedbacks Vizag got a head start in Swachh Survekshan 2018 with only one place ahead.

The South Delhi Municipal Corporation is believed to be ahead of Visakhapatnam with more than 1.1 lakh responses.

The number of responses from other major cities from Andhra Pradesh is far less. The city is followed by Vijayawada with 12,106 responses, Tirupati with 17,425, Rajahmundry with 15,549 and Kakinada with10,012.

The response of Vizagities is even more compared to the other cities at the national level as well. Trailing behind Visakhapatnam is Indore with 62,502 responses and Tiruchirappalli with 52,992 responses.

The efforts of the civic body, as well as the 'Love Vizag' campaign taken up by active residents of the city, seem to have propelled the city in terms of the number of responses.

Citizens' feedback forms a crucial part of the survey this time as it dedicates 1,400 marks (35 percent weightage) for citizens' feedback and utilization of Swachhata App out of the total 4,000 marks.

The GVMC is leaving no stone unturned towards getting the first rank in this year's survey, from creating videos and setting up hoardings across the city on Swachh Bharat Mission, Swachh Survekshan and citizen feedback components. GVMC is also distributing pamphlets about the survey and citizen feedback at several public places.

After Swachh Survekshan 2018 incorporated the sustainable waste management practices, the GVMC has aggressively pushed the public towards garbage segregation as well as composting. The residents of the city were also made aware of the survey through FM radio channels and local TV advertisements.
 
A central observation team, as part of Swachh Survekshan 2018, will arrive in the city on February 12. They will visit various areas in the city for direct observation as well as to seek citizens' feedback. The survey team will also visit public toilets, market-places and other public areas.
