Visakhapatnam civic body Additional Commissioner, V Sanyasi Rao, emphasised the pivotal role of Citizen Feedback in the Swachh Survekshan survey. The GVMC is leaving no stone unturned to gather feedback from the largest possible respondent base, he stated. Widespread awareness campaigns have been orchestrated across educational institutions, offices, shopping complexes, and public spaces to promote participation. This year’s feedback performance demonstrates substantial growth compared to the previous year, which saw responses from only 400,000 users. Participants are encouraged to submit their feedback by the deadline of 15 August.
