Bangalore ‘best Indian city for expats’

Bangalore ‘best Indian city for expats’
New Delhi, May 26, (PTI):

Bangalore once again emerged as the best Indian city when it comes to the quality of living for expatriates, even as New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata improved their rankings on the global list of cities compiled by HR consultancy Mercer for 2010.

According to the Worldwide Quality of Living survey 2010 for 221 cities globally, Bengaluru remains the best placed among Indian cities in the global list at 140th rank this year, an improvement from its 142nd rank in last year’s list.

“This year, unlike the last, we have seen an upswing in the ranking of Indian cities, largely on account of a relatively stable political environment and the easing of foreign trade,” Mercer Information Product Solutions (India business leader) Gangapriya Chakraverti said.

The country’s national capital, New Delhi, climbed to 143 rank in this year’s list from 145th slot last year and financial hub Mumbai moved up four places to 144th rank. However, Indian cities do not fare well compared to their global peers, as the list is topped by Vienna (Austria).
