JAIPUR: The cities in Rajasthan including Jaipur Greater and Jaipur Heritage have fared very poorly in the Swachh Survekshan (Cleanliness Survey) – 2022. No city has been included in the list of 20 cleanest cities in the country. Jaipur Heritage has secured a rank of 26, while Jaipur Greater has slid down to 33rd position. Rajasthan has secured an overall position as the eighth cleanest state in the country.

Rajasthan has not secured even half of the overall marks as compared to Madhya Pradesh. The overall marks of Madhya Pradesh are 4470 while that of Rajasthan is only 2150. That is why many cities of Madhya Pradesh have been included in the list of the cleanest city in the country. Indore has been ranked as the cleanest city for the sixth time in a row. It is followed by Surat in Gujarat and Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra.

Dungarpur was in number one position among the cities with a population of less than one lakh. Its rank slid to fifth last year, while it has not secured any rank this year.

No city of Rajasthan of ours with a population of 1 to 10 lakhs has made it to the top 100. At least, five cities found a place in the top 100 every year.
