Mumbai can improve its position if it does 1)Segregation of Dry and wet Garbage and 2) If it does Night Sweeping also i.e. 2 times a day.Like Indore. more  
Lonavla? Recently I visited but found more dirty and polluted then before. more  
India has introduced the Swachh Bharat Mission on 2nd October 2014. In the meantime more than 5 years have passed. Government is collecting 0.5% Cess towards Swachh Bharat Mission and supporting the Local authorities. By this time all cities should have improved a lot. But you will not find a "Souchalaya" in many important places in the town. more  
It is true, the list does not reflect the actual ground picture. This is prepared to promote some selected cities more  
Someone has put in a lot of effort in assembling this list, thanks! In any case, awards should be announced for cities which are adjusted as the cleanest in their regions. This step will motivate the people to keep their cities clean and develop/strengthen community sense. more
