AS Swachh Survekshan 2018, a nation-wide evaluation to ascertain cleanliness of the 500 cities conducted by Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoUA) has already commenced,Tiruchy Corporation has started reaching out to the college students for promoting the Swachhata App, an official android application for reporting civic issues. By promoting the extensive use of the app that encourages public participation in keeping a city clean, it is said that the Ur-ban Local Body (ULB) could grab at least 400 marks in the ensuing Swachh survey, but in the previous survey, the score for Swachhata app was limited to 300 marks. Corporation targets at least 10,000 downloads of the Swachhata app in the next few months. The Corporation has begun the awareness events to brief the students about the provisions and services available in Swachhata android application for re-cording grievances pertaining to public hygiene. Since, the students' community is known for being tech-savvy, Corporation sources said the youth were tar-geted to promote the public participation and awareness in the city as far as cleanliness is concerned. Swachh Survekshan 2017 sur-vey would be conducted simultaneously across 500 cities (with a population of one lakh and above) under Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban (SBM-U), subsequently, the ranking would be carried out in three stages such as collection of data and interaction with Municipal body, direct observation, and feedback from urban locals. In the feedback from the urban local section, Swachhata App has a crucial role in gaining at least 400 marks in the survey by evaluating the number of downloads by city residents and percentage of complaints resolved by the corporation.

If more than 10% households have downloaded- 150 marks
If only less than 2% households have downloaded- 0 marks
Complaints resolved through Swachh App: 100% complaints resolved:150 marks
less than 40% complaints resolved: 0 marks

As the GPS-enabled application will help the public to report their grievance on the spot, a dedicated team of the ULB would monitor the complaints and re-solve the same at the earliest. In a recent awareness meeting on Swachhata App held at a college here, at least 750 students were said to have downloaded the application to boost the chances of the city to surface in top 10 clean-est rankings for the third straight year. To ensure good score in the Swachh Survekshan 2018, the Corporation is likely to promote the official android app.
