Mangaluru city has ranked 41st in the country and top in the State in the Ease of Living Index 2018 released by the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs in Delhi on Monday.

The national ranking of the other six cities are Hubballi-Dharwad (57), Bengaluru (58), Shivamogga (67), Tumakuru (70) and Davangere (83). The index launched in January 2018 assessed 111 cities in the country. The executive summary of the report said that the Ease of Living Index will provide citizens with useful and practical information about how their city performs on the various parameters included in the index.
The factors are municipal finances, education, health, transportation, crime prevention, water supply, housing, among others. Having access to this information will enable citizens to understand how liveable their city is and also, will allow them to compare its performance vis-à-vis other cities in the same region. This could help provide the basis for constructive dialogue between citizens and decision-makers on areas demanding greater attention.
