What is Ease of Living Index?

The government said the 'Ease of Living Index' is an assessment tool that evaluates the quality of life and the impact of various initiatives for urban development.

According to sources, a total of 32.2 lakh people living across as many as 111 cities participated in a 'Citizen Perception Survey' (this holds a weightage of around 30 %).

"These cities have emerged as models of development who will inspire others to perform better. Further, their peers will also benefit from emulating their best practices," Puri said.
