  1. Being Mumbaikar, I am ashamed that my city is one of the filthiest city.The municipal corporation of Mumbai is the richest corporation in the world.So where all those monies goes? Anyone can guess.

  2. Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh seems to be one of the cleanest maintained city despite the influx of 50 to 70 thousand pilgrimage a day throng from different corners of the country and from a broad. The review needs a check up and revision

  3. Bangalore is a filthy place. Unbelievable that it is listed here. So that means all other cities are as bad as Bangalore i guess ??

  4. It is a sad thing that no city is made to this list from Uttar Pradesh, the largest state in India by population. I think everyone should share this article “Top 10 Cleanest Cities in India” to make people aware about their cities have not made into this list. Thanks!
