" What we are living with is the result of human choices and it can be changed by making better, wiser choices."

-Robert Redfordagencies.

As the state capital, Bhubaneswar has successfully maintained its distinction of being recognized by various international and national agencies as “one of the best places to do business in India”. This recognition is partially responsible because of the high quality infrastructure facilities provided by the joint efforts of BMC and BDA with support from the Government of Odisha. On the other hand, the city continues to tackle challenges that are negative consequences of urbanization faced by many cities. We now suffer from a growing threat of an ever-increasing volume of waste generated for an increasing population, which is one of the most challenging tasks governments are struggling to manage. Also, after being ranked 25th among the 28 state capitals under the Swachh Bharat Mission, BMC is looking at better managing the city’s waste services from garbage collection, recycling, and sewage to littering, access to public toilets, and eliminating open defecation.
