Indian cities — an interesting study

It is indeed true, what social experts say, that India is a land of paradox. Interestingly, even the economic development that is growing in an accelerating pace, has done nothing to change this astounding truth!

Recently, a survey put forth the findings that Gurgaon, that tops the list of most preferred cities in India to earn a living, is not actually among the best places to live. What a paradox!

Here are some more interesting facts from the data compiled by an Economics Research firm, on residences, earnings and investments.

1.The four metros of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai are not really among the ten best cities to reside in, earn in or invest.

2.  Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai are cities preferred by millionaires to spend their life in.

3.  Gurgaon, Silvaasa, Noida, Faridabad, Rupnagar, Chandigarh, Surat, Bangalore, Gandhinagar and Pune figure in the best ‘earn-in’ cities.

4.  Among the best cities to reside, five are from Kerala — Kochi, Kozhikode, Thrissur, Thiruvananthapuram, and Kannur; while the others are Mysore, Goa, Pondicherry, Shimla and Thiruvalur.

Indicus, the economic research firm, considered the following parameters — health, education, environment, safety, public facilities and entertainment — for preparing the ‘reside-in’ index; and  growth rate of employment, per capita income and listings on popular job websites, for the ‘earn-in’ index.
