Results of Garbage Free Cities Star Rating postoned until further notice


STAR RATING OF GARBAGE FREE CITIES, an initiative launched by the MINISTRY OF HOUSING AND URBAN AFFAIRS, envisions to enable cities to gradually evolve into a model (7-star) city, with progressive improvements in their overall cleanliness. The star rating conditions are based on 19 key parameters across the solid waste management spectrum and has been designed to both help cities assess their progress while encouraging them to move towards a better rating thereby improving their cities’ overall cleanliness and aesthetics.

In order to institutionalize a mechanism for cities to achieve Garbage Free status, and to motivate the cities to achieve higher degrees of cleanliness, A SEVEN STAR rating Protocol is defined for Garbage Free cities, which builds on aspirations of cities to progress towards higher standards of “Swachhata”.

The Star Rating is supported by a robust verification mechanism to ensure transparency and standardisation. Cities was required to carry out self-assessment and self-verification for achieving a certain star rating. This self-declaration was further verified through an independent third-party agency KANTAR PUBLIC appointed by MoHUA for 3-star, 5-star and 7-star garbage free ratings.

Below is the list of ULBs declared 3-star, 5-star and 7-star after independent verification by Kantar Public.
