Hyderabad: Hyderabad has emerged as the best city in terms of quality of living in India for the second year in a row, according to the Quality of Living 2016 index compiled by global consulting major Mercer. National capital Delhi moved down six places to 161st rank, the lowest among the seven Indian cities in the list.
The safest Indian cities are Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru, ranked 113, 121 and 123 respectively. These cities have emerged as cities of choice due to factors such as relatively lower crime rate, lesser air pollution and improved options for international and reputed English speaking schools. Hyderabad and Pune rank higher than country’s more traditional business centres for their quality of living.
Mercer notes that “considerable population increases in Mumbai and New Delhi in recent decades have increased existing problems, including access to clean water, air pollution, and traffic congestion”.
