Mysuru: What could be the reason for Mysuru being selected as top cleanest city in the country for the second consecutive year?
Yes, Mysuru, which was famously known as Cultural city, Palace city etc is now the cleanest city in the country. It is one such reasons why tourists and businessmen are attracted to this city.

Role of MCC

The Mysuru city has beaten 75 other cities in the country to win the top spot and the role of Mysuru City Corporation is commendable. The credit goes to the MCC for efficient waste management and turning the city 98% open defecation free. At present, over 405 tonnes of waste is collected by 9 units in which 2600 temporary and 630 permanent workers who have pledged to keep the city clean. As many as 250 toilets have been built by the MCC and it has a target of building 429 toilets in the city.

Survey for the cleanest city

A month back, the Union Urban Development department under Swach Bharath Mission had undertaken Quality Council of India Survey. Mysuru secured 935 points out of 1000.

Support from public, organisations

On Gandhi Jayanthi, the entire nation pledged to maintain cleanliness in response to Prime Minister Modi’s Swach Bharath Mission. In Mysuru several youth belonging to different associations voluntarily took brooms in their hands and became models to others to keep the city clean. The MCC too created awareness among the public and it also imposed fine those who violated norms.

Challenges ahead

The Mysuru city has to maintain the top spot despite various challenges in coming years. The city population is increasing day by day. Few waste disposing units have stopped working and the MCC also faces shortage of staff. Residents near waste disposal units too have been agitating from long against the MCC to shift these units. The target of the MCC to build public toilets too is not successful yet.

Whatever it may be, with all these challenges, the city has won the top spot as cleanest city. The MCC has taken it as compliment and has decided to implement more and more plans to keep the city clean and develop in the future.
