Venkaiah Naidu Announces The Launch Of ‘Swachh Survekshan-2017’  

06 August 2016

New Delhi: M Venkaiah Naidu, Minister of Urban Development recently launched the Sanitation Survey in the name of ‘Swachh Survekshan-2017’. This second round of survey will cover 500 cities and towns, including those with a population of one lakh and above each besides capital towns with less than one lakh population and towns of importance from the point of view of heritage, tourism and hilly locations etc.
It will assess the levels of sanitation, efforts being made by respective states and urban local bodies and to capture the improvements made since last Swachh Survekshan, results of which were announced in January this year. Besides, this also helps in ranking the cities in relation to others in respect of sanitation levels.
He said, “That spirit of competition is very essential to improve levels of sanitation in respective cities and also in relation to other cities. That is why we are scaling up the scope of this round of survey to 500 cities and towns that account for most of the urban India. I am sure the results of this round of survey would be even more exciting and revealing when the survey results will be announced after about six months from now.”
90,000 community and public toilet seats have been built so far as against only 33,000 such toilet seats put in place till January this year. Another 1.40 lakh toilet seats are under construction. The mission target in this regard is over 5.00 lakh such toilet seats by October, 2019, he informed.
