Chandigarh is rightly adjudged as the most clean city in the country. Having spent a major part of my childhood in Chandigarh/Panchkula, its a great feeling to learn that Chandigarh is India's cleanest city.

The first four rank-holders are:

1. Chandigarh
2. Mysore
3. Surat
4. NDMC area in New Delhi

Please see this link of NDTV:

I watched the last night 9 pm news in NDTV, which reported that Chennai gets 13th rank and Mumbai, 40th rank.

I love Mysore. Reminds me of Ye Olde Bangalore. Chamundi hills, the spacious roads, proximity to superb places.
Bangalore being 12th is the surprise here.
