What is Star Rating Protocol?

The Star Rating Protocol was launched by the Ministry in January 2018 to institutionalize a mechanism for cities to realize Garbage Free status and to motivate cities to realize higher degrees of cleanliness. The core of the protocol is on Solid Waste Management(SWM) & also ensures certain minimum standards of sanitation through a group of prerequisites defined within the framework.

It’ll consider ward-wise geo-mapping, monitoring of SWM value chain through ICT interventions like Swachh Nagar App and zone-wise rating in cities with a population of quite 50 lakh. The performance of cities under the Star Rating Protocol is crucial because it carries significant weightage when it involves their final assessment in Swachh Survekshan.”
