The Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Jal Shakti
(DDWS) has decided to undertake “Swachh Survekshan Grameen- in year 2019 and again in year
2020 to provide national ranking of all districts and States of India on the basis of
quantitative and qualitative sanitation (Swachhata) parameters. This ranking will be
based on a comprehensive set of parameters including self-reporting by Districts, data
from the SBM-G IMIS, village-level surveys of public places like schools, Anganwadis, PHCs, Haat bazaars,
Panchayat and citizen’s perception of Swachhata and their recommendations for improvement of the program.
Encourage large scale citizen participation and create awareness
Foster a spirit of healthy competition among villages for creating cleaner villages.
Undertake a ranking of Districts and States on key SBM-G parameters.
Compare performance of the Districts and States nationally on key SBM-G parameters.

Engage with selected Gram Panchayats in every district and solicit their feedback.
Assess the effectiveness of environmental management (EMM) and IEC/BCC interventions under SBM-G.

The ranking would be done using information on service level progress obtained from the Integrated Management Information System (IMIS) of Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, survey of public places undertaken by the personnel of survey agency using standard observation parameters and citizen’s feedback from the villages and online using an App developed for the purpose.
65% weightage has been assigned to the findings and outcome from the Survekshan and 35% to the service level parameters to be obtained from the IMIS of the DDWS. The weights to different elements of the SSG would be as below:
Direct Observation of sanitation in public places (30%)
Citizen’s Feedback including feedback from common citizens, key influencers at the village level and from citizens online using the App (35%)
Service Level Progress on sanitation related parameters (35%)
