While we are looking at scoring a chauka at the world’s largest urban sanitation and cleanliness survey Swachh Survekshan 2020, we managed to grab the chauthi position at the recently Smart City survey.
The list comprises only 29 cities of the country, which was topped by Agra. In fact, cities like Jabalpur, Gwalior, Satna, and Sagar failed to secure a spot among these 29 cities.
While Indore stood fourth, Bhopal secured eighth place and Ujjain 26 in this ranking. Indore secured a total of 60.63 points out of 100 while Agra secured 73.17 points in three categories including project implementation rank, fund transfer rank, and fund utilization rank. Bhopal secured a total of 55.23 and Ujjain 44.63 points.
The survey is being conducted by the urban administration ministry, and the rankings are awarded based on ongoing developmental works in the city. The urban administration department issues rankings every month based on the survey.
