The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) and the newly formed Panvel City Municipal Corporation (PCMC) are working hard on the cleanliness quotient of the satellite cities ahead of central team’s ongoing Swachh Survekshan based on which the municipal corporations will be ranked. The team is likely to visit in January and conduct a survey as part of the Swachh drive.
The 15 suburban stations and nine bus terminals in NMMC and PCMC areas will be under watch as part of the cleanliness drive. The railway and bus stations will be checked for cleanliness and adherence to prescribed norms. As part of the survey, there will be monitoring of civic amenities for commuters, public toilets and waste segregation in housing societies.
Direct observation of amenities for commuters, public toilets, waste segregation by housing societies and composting form 25 per cent or 1,000 of total 4,000 points under which civic bodies will be evaluated by the central team.
NMMC had topped the state, ranking eighth nationally. However, the newly-formed Panvel City Municipal Corporation was formed last year in October it had little time for preparing for the drive and had ranked low. In terms of weightage in the public infra, the main bus station tops the list, followed by public toilets, railway stations and market places.
