In bad news for the state government, Bengaluru has emerged as a city with one of the poorest infrastructures in the world, and the worst in country.
According to Mercer’s global rankings for this year, the country’s IT capital stands at a low 177, mainly due to poor public services and transport.
While Bengaluru was ranked the lowest in the country in terms of infrastructure, Delhi was ranked worst in the country in terms of quality of living, with a global rank of 161.
In a report published in Deccan Herald, Ruchika Pal, principal and India practice leader, Global Mobility, Mercer cited irregular power supply, frequent voltage changes, inadequate public transport, traffic congestion as the key reasons for Bengaluru’s poor ranking.
Globally, Baghdad (230) and Port au Prince (231) ranked at the bottom for city infrastructure.
Hyderabad, on the other hand, has been ranked the best city in India in terms of quality of living, with a global rank of 144. On a global scale, Vienna is the best city to live in. It may be noted that Hyderabad was ranked 139th last year, which means it has fallen five spots this time.
Both Hyderabad and Pune ranked higher for quality of living than the countrys traditional business centres Mumbai and New Delhi, which have been ranked at 154 and 161, respectively, by the report.
