Srinagar, Aug 06: After the contract for evaluating different cleanliness metrics across all 35 wards of Srinagar city ended in March this year, officials at the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) said on Saturday that the project will be resumed within the next few weeks.
Chief sanitation officer Nazir Ahmad Baba told Rising Kashmir that the exercise is going to be restarted within the next couple of weeks as the hiring of an independent agency is under process and has been tendered.
“The process of evaluating the 35 wards of Srinagar on various cleanliness parameters was very helpful which was done by an independent agency, however, their contract period ended this year in March. We have tendered the hiring of the Project Management Unit (PMU) and within the next couple of weeks the process will be restarted”, he said.
Baba said that the Field Assessment Matrix parameters by PMU were done on sweeping, garbage lifting, and elimination of garbage.
“The total score of measuring cleanliness parameters was 300 for a municipal ward, of which sweeping, garbage lifting, and elimination of garbage parameters had a maximum score of 100”, he added.
Notably, the ranking invited an in-house competition among the concerned ward sanitation officers of scoring top on cleanliness parameters in their respective wards.
As per cleanliness parameters, Srinagar Municipal wards were categorized into four zones, and municipal wards scoring more than 90 percent points were placed under the ‘Good Performer’ category, wards scoring greater than 80 percent to 90 percent were placed under the ‘Satisfactory’ category.
As per the report, wards scoring more than 75 percent to 80 percent were placed under the ‘Fair’ category and municipal wards obtaining less than 75 percent of points were placed under the ‘Poor’ category.
