On Wednesday, a government survey ranked cities across the country in terms of cleanliness. A three-member team from Quality Council of India (QCI) completed the survey in the city in the first week of February as part of the assessment for the Swachh Survekshan-2018 rankings. To aware people about cleanliness, several chaupals were conducted across the city where the Mayor interacted with residents appealing them to keep their surrounding clean. "I was more happy when I came to know that GHMC won an award for solid waste management than when I received an award from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for administration", said Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) commissioner B Janardhan Reddy. I congratulate and thank all residents; it is due to their efforts.

The survey adds that Jharkhand is the "best-performing state in terms of cleanliness".
