Out of 4,000 cities in India, Pune has topped the Ease of Living Index released by Ministry of Housing. In context with the most liveable cities of India, Maharashtra’s Pune, Navi Mumbai and Greater Mumbai are the top three preferred cities while national capital Delhi was ranked a lowly 65 according to the index.

The Ease of Living Index survey conducted by Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry, chose four parameters – governance, social institutions, economic and physical infrastructure – to rank the cities.

Thane is the fourth Maharashtra city that made it to the top 10 in the list. Other cities ranked among the best 10 are Tirupati, Chandigarh, Raipur, Indore, Vijaywada and Bhopal.

Notably, none of the cities in big states like Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka have made it to the top 10.

Chennai has been ranked 14, Hyderabad at 27 and Bengaluru at 85. Kolkata had refused to participate in the survey.

Gurugram is at the 88th spot. Rampur in Uttar Pradesh is at the bottom of the list that has Jammu and Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir at 95 and 100.

The assessment standards, according to the government, are closely linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will provide a strong impetus to India’s effort for systematic tracking progress of the goals in the urban areas.

Of the 17 SDG goals, eight are directly linked to India’s ease of living assessment framework.
