The minister also announced a new category of awards titled ‘Prerak Daaur Samman’ as part of ‘Swachh Survekshan 2021’.

The Prerak Daaur Samman has five additional sub-categories -Divya (Platinum), Anupam (Gold), Ujjwal (Silver), Udit (Bronze), and Aarohi (Aspiring) – with the top three cities being recognized in each.

The survey will categorize cities on the basis of six indicator-wise performance criteria — segregation of waste into wet, dry, and hazard categories; processing capacity against wet waste generated; processing and recycling of wet and dry waste; construction and demolition (C&D) waste processing; the percentage of waste going to landfills; and sanitation status of cities.

The ministry said that ‘Swachh Survekshan 2020’ had seen unprecedented participation of 1.87 crore citizens.

The 2018 cleanliness survey, which became the world’s largest cleanliness survey, had ranked 4,203 cities.

The ‘Swachh Survekshan 2019’ which not only covered 4,237 cities but was also the first-of-its-kind completely digital survey completed in a record time of 28 days, it said in a statement.
