India's top 10 most livable cities

The recently announced Ease of Living Index 2020 rankings for cities indicates that Bengaluru and Pune are the most “livable” among larger cities, while Shimla and Bhubaneswar topped the charts among the smaller cities.

A total of 111 cities participated in the exercise when the assessment was conducted last year by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs.

Bengaluru emerged as the best city on ease of living parameters with an index score of 66.70 among Indian cities with a population of more than a million. Pushing last year’s top-ranked city, Pune, to a second position, Bengaluru jumped the charts from its distant previous position at 58 in 2018.

Ease of living was the lowest in Bareilly (UP), Dhanbad (Jharkhand), and Srinagar (J&K). Among cities with a population of less than a million, Shimla was ranked first followed by Bhubaneswar.
