CBD BE­LA­PUR: How clean do you think your city is? Now you can give feed­back to the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment about san­i­ta­tion, solid waste man­age­ment and toi­lets in your city.

The cen­tral gov­ern­ment has ini­ti­ated ‘Swachh Sarvek­shan’, a rank­ing sur­vey un­der the Swachh Bharat Mis­sion.

The sur­vey has been com­mis­sioned by the min­istry of ur­ban de­vel­op­ment and is be­ing con­ducted by the Qual­ity Coun­cil of In­dia (QCI), to as­sess the san­i­ta­tion and hy­giene con­di­tions of 75 ma­jor cities, in­clud­ing 53 cities with a pop­u­la­tion of above 10 lakh each, and state cap­i­tals.

The sur­vey will also as­sess work done on con­struct­ing house­hold toi­lets and com­mu­nity toi­let seats.

The sur­vey agen­cies will col­lect nec­es­sary data from ur­ban lo­cal bod­ies through direct ob­ser­va­tion, cit­i­zen feed­back via ques­tion­naires and au­to­mated tele­phonic ques­tion­naire on a na­tional toll-free num­ber.

Cit­i­zens can sub­mit their feed­back by giv­ing a missed call on 1800 267 2777.

Mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Di­nesh Wagh­mare said, “Once a missed call is given on the num­ber, the caller will get a re­turn call. He can choose be­tween Hindi and English as the lan­guage of his choice. Once that is se­lected, the lo­cal pin code num­ber has to be fed in.”

He added, “The caller will then be asked ques­tions re­lated to his city’s san­i­ta­tion, solid waste man­age­ment and toi­lets. He will have to rank them as 1, 2, or 3.”

Wagh­mare said, “The toll­free num­ber will be ac­tive till Jan­uary 15, 2016. The rank­ing sur­vey will con­clude on Jan­uary 20.”

He said, “The re­sults will be an­nounced on the My Gov web­site on Jan­uary 25.”

Mayor Sud­hakar Son­awane said, “Swachh Sarvek­shan is an im­por­tant tool for the cit­i­zens to share feed­back on clean­li­ness drives or­gan­ised in their re­gions.”
