Mumbai: Following its subpar performance in the ‘National Swachh Survekshan 2023,’ civic officials in Mumbai are under scrutiny from Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. To secure a top 10 ranking this year, the BMC is now turning to the ‘Indore model’ of waste management, which has maintained Indore as the cleanest city in India for seven consecutive years.

Mumbai faced challenges in the survey, particularly in source segregation of garbage (65%) and waste generation versus processing (49%). The city scored the lowest in the remediation of dumpsites, receiving only 9%.
