None of the 26 cities or towns surveyed in Karnataka — but for Mysuru, which was ranked 3rd — figured in the Top 100 list of clean cities in the Swachh Survekshan 2019, the results of which were announced on Wednesday.

The Swachh Survekshan 2019 is a pan-India survey conducted by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India, and 4,237 towns and cities, including cantonment boards across the country — barring West Bengal which opted not to participate — were surveyed on various parameters.

While Indore in Madhya Pradesh was ranked the cleanest city, followed by Ambikapur in Chhattisgarh, Mysuru with a score of 4378.5 out of 5000 was ranked third. However, Mangaluru was ranked 165th in the country with a score of 2518.5, while Bengaluru was ranked 194th with a score of 2331.81.

The survey was carried out over a period of 28 days and nearly 6.54 lakh locations were visited by the surveyors for validation.

In all, 4,800 assessors took part in it and there were over 11 lakh face-to-face feedback elicited during the survey.
