At a ceremony held on Saturday, President Droupadi Murmu presented the awards to the winners. Hardeep Singh Puri, the Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, was also present.

Surat, Bhopal, Mysuru, Navi Mumbai, Vishakhapatnam, and Tirupati all received 5-star Garbage Free certifications, while Indore became the first 7-star Garbage Free city in India.

Only Chennai and Madurai, who were in the bottom two, were lower as compared to Bengaluru. Madhya Pradesh was the nation’s cleanest state.

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the civic administrative body of Bengaluru, claims to have received more than five lakh replies from locals for the research.

The chief commissioner of the BBMP, IAS officer Tushar Giri Nath, stated that there was a conflict between the consultant chosen by the Centre and the BBMP and that authorities would thoroughly investigate this topic.
