  • 2 min read

The Minister of State for Housing & Urban Affairs has launched the Swachh Survekshan 2020 (SS 2020) league, a quarterly cleanliness assessment of cities and towns in India.

  • SS 2020 league will be integrated with Swachh Survekshan 2020, the 5th edition of the annual cleanliness survey of urban India to be conducted from January – February 2020 by Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs under the aegis of Swachh Bharat Mission- Urban (SBM-U).
  • Under ‘Continuous Survekshan’ – the SS 2020 League, cleanliness assessments will happen throughout the year and will feed into the larger annual survey in January 2020.
  • Parameters pertaining to Wastewater treatment & reuse and fecal sludge management have been given special focus.

SS 2020: Quarterly Evaluation Mechanism

  • SS League 2020 will be conducted in 3 quarters:
    • April – June
    • July – September
    • October – December 2019
  • There will be a weightage of 2000 marks for each quarter to be evaluated on the basis of two parameters:
    • Monthly updation of SBM-U online MIS by cities.
    • citizen’s validation on the 12 service level progress indicators through outbound calls.
  • Ranks will be assigned in two categories, namely:
    • cities with a population of one lakh and above
    • cities with a population of less than one lakh
  • The performance of cities in SS League 2020 will be crucial to their ranking in Swachh Survekshan 2020 due to the 25% weightage of the quarterly assessments to be included in the annual survey in January 2020.

Need for a Quarterly Evaluation Mechanism

  • Annual survekshan survey conducted once in a year, fails to sustain the behavioural change, as cities cleaned themselves up just before a survey and slipped down after that.
  • Continuous monitoring element, that involves monitoring of cleanliness drives throughout the year was missing in the Annual survekshan surveys.
