Pune is most livable city
This is the first-ever exercise undertaken by the government to rank cities on their "ease of living" parameters. Though initially there was plan to cover 116 cities, both 100 smart cities and those with more than one million population. Four cities - Howrah, New Town Kolkata and Durgapur - did not participate in the survey. Moreover, Naya Raipur and Amaravati did not fit into the parameters as these are Greenfield cities.
