It was expected that Chandigarh will get a good rank in this Swachh Survekshan as the city had done a lot to regain its spot in the top cleanest cities of India from the past couple of years.

As compared to 2017 where Swachh Survekshan was conducted in 434 cities, this year the scope was enhanced manifold. Janardhan Reddy, stating that this was "the mother of all awards", said it emphasized the core concern of city governance in present days.

Total marks for assessment under Swachh Survekshan 2018 were increased to 4,000 from 2,000 and the various parameters for marking include collection and transportation of municipal solid waste, processing and disposal of municipal solid waste, sanitation related progress, iec (information, education and communication), capacity building and innovation and best practices. State ranking was introduced in this year's survey, which was conducted between January 4 and March 10.
