Top 10 Dirtiest Cities of India

Sanitation, i.e., the hygienic means of promoting health through prevention of human contact with the hazards of wastes, is an important aspect of healthcare.

Though the earliest evidence of urban sanitation was seen in Harappa, Mohenjo-daro and the recently discovered Rakhigarhi of Indus Valley civilizations, the basic concepts of sanitation are still grossly overlooked and neglected in modern-day India.

With these concerns in mind, the Ministry of Urban Development of the Indian Government carried out a first-of-its-kind study in 2009 to rank 423 Indian cities in terms of sanitation and cleanliness, with the aim to sensitize administration and citizens of Indian cities about their current state of sanitation. The first report was published in May 2010 and was the ministry’s first step towards achieving its ambitious agenda of ‘100 percent sanitation’.

Based on the study, ThinktoSustain identifies the Top 10 Dirtiest Cities of India on a 100-point scale, and showcases them with their salient features, and in some cases, explains how they happen to be included in the listing.
