Swachh Survekshan Grameen Awards 2018
Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave Swachh Survekshan Grameen Awards 2018 awards to top Ranked State, District and State with maximum citizen participation based on the National Swachh Survekshan Grameen 2018.
The Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation had commissioned “Swachh Survekshan Grameen-2018” through an independent survey agency to develop ranking of all districts of India on the basis of quantitative and qualitative sanitation (Swachhata) parameters. This ranking was done based on a comprehensive set of parameters including surveys of public places like schools, Anganwadis, PHCs, Haat/ Bazaars, Panchayat and citizen’s perception of Swachhata and their recommendations for improvement of the program.
As part of Swachh Survekshan Grameen, 6786 villages in 685 Districts across India were covered. 27,963 public places namely schools, anganwadis, public health centres, haat/ bazaars/religious places in these 6786 villages were visited by an independent agency for survey.
The objective of the Swachh Survekshan survey is to encourage citizen participation, increase capacities for sustainable ODF and sanitation measures and to create awareness amongst all sections of society about the importance of collective action to contribute in India’s journey towards a ‘Swachh Bharat’
