Indore and Bhopal have retained their position as the top two cleanest cities for the second consecutive year.

With Mumbai's rank dropping from No. 10 in 2016 to No. 29 in 2017, the BMC had taken steps to improve the city. While Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) bagged the award for waste management, which includes segregation of waste and transportation from household to Jawaharnagar dumping yard and recycling it, the rank of the city for cleanliness has not been released yet. It is a pan-India survey of all cities and states rating them on the basis of cleanliness and public feedback among other indicators.
