The Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry Monday released the results of its survey on the Ease of Living in cities across the country. There were 111 cities surveyed by the ministry. Minister of State (Independent charge) Hardeep Singh Puri, while announcing the results, said West Bengal refused to participate in the study.

The ministry studied quality of life in each city based on several parametres, including institutional (governance), social (identity, education, health, security), economic ( economy, employment) and physical (waste water and solid waste management, pollution, housing/ inclusiveness, mixed land use, power and water supply, transport, public open spaces) factors. Each parametre carried a weightage totaling 100 marks — institutional (25), social (25), physical (45) and economic (5). Based on this, the cities are given an overall rank.

While releasing the index, Puri said, “This exercise has made us deal with a reality where you are dependent on a large number of local bodies for data. Many people consider this to be intrusive. But this will have a very positive demonstrative and lighthouse effect where people will realise that providing data will be the new normal in order for them to be able to enjoy a greater ease of living.”

The index, which was conceived in 2017, is based on information from the 2011 Census.
