October 4, 2017: Biate town was declared the cleanest town in Mizoram on the October 2, 2017 at AR Ground in Aizawl. Biate was declared the cleanest town in Caregory II, and above and beyond this, it was declared the cleanest town amongst all the towns and city in Mizoram (for being the first position holder in overall category)
The competition was conducted by the department of Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation, government of Mizoram.
Biate has been known as one of the cleanest towns since the last two decades. However, never had it been declared the cleanest town before seemingly owing to the absence of proper water supply scheme taken over under the government. As per a facebook post put up by a Facebook Page named BIATE TOWN , the immense contribution of each and every people of Biate can be attributed to its grand success.
