In a recent survey under the flagship of Swachh Bharat mission, Bhopal was declared the cleanest city after Indore. The survey was conducted to estimate the cleanliness level of more than 400 cities in India.
The final result was announced last month by Hardeep Singh Puri, the Minister of State for Housing. It was based on the resident’s feedback about sanitation and cleanliness in their respective cities. Unlike the previous years, the survey this year allocated great weightage to people’s feedbacks on the basis of day-to-day experiences.
A rally starting from the fire brigade office at Fatehgarh to Chowk bajaar celebrated the news. It included various BMC officials and leaders like Mayor Alok Sharma (Commissioner of the Bhopal Municipal Corporation), Priyanka Das (Member of Parliament from Bhopal), Alok Sanjar (Corporators of the BMC). It also witnessed great participation of the residents.
“We will take several initiatives this year to become number one in the next survey,” said Alok Sharma, commissioner of the Bhopal Municipal Corporation.
As a matter of fact, Bhopal has always ranked high in terms of cleanliness. It boasts of a high quality of life for the residents. These are the major factors as to why the city has been harnessing unparalleled realty buyers’ and developers’ interest lately. People from other cities are also considering Bhopal as a highly lucrative investment option.
A number of reputed realtors like Swadesh Builders, Mahendra Builders, Bhoomi Group have come up with state-of-the-art realty projects to reap huge benefits with the speculated increase in realty demand and price.
According to Swadesh Builders Bhopal MD, Nitin Agarwal, “Along with maintaining a high cleanliness level, Bhopal is rapidly moving towards overall economic and financial growth. As a result, many IT companies and fast-food chains have established their base in the city.”
He added: “This will surely have a major positive impact on the city’s real estate segment. However, the prices of residential and commercial spaces have still not hit the brim. They are still within the range of average buyers.”
