    Which is the best Indian city to live in?

    One of the most difficult financial decisions one has to make in life is to decide the place where they would choose to stay. The location one chooses is influenced by a host of pros and cons. The cost of living, the availability of economic opportunities, the quality of life, education facilities, among others are some of the many deciding factors. Mercer, a global human resources consulting firm, has released its annual Quality of Living Survey, listing city rankings of best places to live in.

    Mercer evaluated local living conditions in more than 440 cities according to 39 factors, grouped in 10 categories (political and social environment, economic environment, socio-cultural environment, medical and health considerations, schools and education, public services and transportation, recreation, consumer goods, housing, and natural environment).

    As per Mercer ranking, Hyderabad is the best city in India to stay in with a ranking of 139 out of 230 cities in the world. Pune has been selected as the second best Indian city with a rank of 144. Other Indian cities that found a place in the list are: Bangalore (145), Chennai (150), Mumbai (152), Kolkata (160), and New Delhi (161). Vienna and Zurich occupy the top two spots of the ranking.

    Congratulations to all Hyderabadis!

    The Mercer's report was published in the month of February, 2016 and we had a discussion also about the same on the following thread -
    http://www.indiastudychannel.com/forum/143415-Hyderabad-ranked-as-the-best-Indian-city-to-live-in.aspx
    The author of this thread had also participated in the discussion on above thread.
    However, as far as a common man is concerned, such surveys mean little as most of the people continue to live at their respective places.
    Only the new generation which gets an option to choose for joining a new job at either of the major cities of India like Mumbai, New Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kolkata etc. may find some application of such surveys.

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
