Surat announced as 5-Star City, Enters ‘Top 6 Garbage-Free Cities to Live in India’

Harshdeep Singh Puri, Minister of State (I/C) for Housing & Urban Affairs has released the list of top-rated garbage-free cities in India on May 19, 2020.

Surat, the city often known as ‘Swachh Surat, Sundar Surat’ has made it to Top-6 Cities of India that has been rated as 5-Star Garbage-Free Cities of the country to live in.

It’s a great pride and honor for Surties as every effort & contribution towards cleanliness counts. The joint efforts of door-to-door garbage collection, separate public bins for wet & dry waste, the restless dedication of cleanliness workers & the city people brought this Badge today.

The survey was carried out under the norms & guidelines provisioned under the Swachh Bharat Mission. A city can be declared as garbage-free only if it meets the conditions as prescribed under the mission’s protocol.

“Our aim is to institutionalize as well as bring consistency and transparency when it comes to SWM.
