In a global survey held recently by a reputed firm Mercer’s Quality of Living Ranking 2019, Hyderabad has been named the best city in India to live in and shares the 143rd position with Pune in Maharashtra. This is not the first time that Hyderabad has received the honour but it is the fifth time in a row, which is absolutely amazing!
Around 231 cities from all over the world were surveyed in the latest and the 21st edition of the annual survey. The survey was based between the period of September and November last year and it was based on 39 prime factors. From education and crime to healthcare and political stability and transportation, everything was taken into the consideration.
On the same list, New Delhi was on 162nd position while Mumbai was at 154 and Bengaluru secured 149th place. From India only these countries could make it to the list unfortunately.
On the global front, Vienna (capital city of Austria) topped the chart for the 10th time in a row while Zurich (Switzerland) was on the second position. Dubai secured 74th position and continues to be an incredible city to live in for its quality of living. It was followed by Abu Dhabi on 78th position.
When it comes to the safest cities, in India Chennai was named the safest with global ranking of 105. Dubai and Abu Dhabi again share the 73rd position in the category while in Africa, Port Louis was named the most liveable city with global ranking of 83.
This is an important ranking which also influences abilities to attract business in the cities.
