In what could be considered as a piece of good news for the people of Vizag, is that GVMC topped in the citizen feedback category in the ongoing Swachh Survekshan Survey-2021 by a huge margin, overtaking Indore by collecting the most feedback in the 10 lakh-above population category, as on January 5.
According to GVMC statistics, 15,427 people had given their feedback for Visakhapatnam city till 6.30 PM on 5th of January, while Indore stood in second place with 4,378 people giving feedback. In the population category of 1-10 lakh, the district of Kurnool and Tirupati to are leading with 8,135 and 3,659 people giving feedback respectively.
Speaking to Hello Vizag, K.S.L.G. Sastry, CMOH of GVMC, said it is indeed good news that we are receiving good feedback. Towards this initiative, we are conducting awareness programs on Citizen Feedback every morning with the help of ward secretaries and volunteers
Citizen feedback is one of the main parameters which constitutes 1,800 marks out of the total 6,000-mark in the survey. Various questions such as cleanliness in the community, commercial places, and toilets will be asked in the survey. Apart from the number of people giving feedback, the category also includes the number of active users of the Swachhata app.
Last year, GVMC stood 9th in the country, so this time, the civic body aims to improve its performance in Citizen Feedback as well as active users in the Swachhata app this year. Updated ratings will be updated on the last day of the survey i.e., 31st of March, 2020.
