The city has got 22nd rank in the overall rankings competing with 434 cities. Hyderabad ranked 19 during the previous year competing with 75 cities.

Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation commissioner B Janardhan Reddy on Thursday congratulated the civic body staff on achieving the honour. He said the city has achieved 1605 marks out of a total of 2000.
