Pune best ‘quality of living’ in India after Hyderabad, says Mercer’s survey

Pune has the second best ‘quality of life’ in India after Hyderabad, says the Quality of Living Index 2023 released by Mercer, a global consultant for businesses.

In India, while Pune scored the 154th position in Mercer’s Quality of Living City Index,  Hyderabad ranked 153rd and Bengaluru attained the 156th spot.   Vienna (Austria), Zurich (Switzerland) and Vancouver (Canada) are the top three cities in that order, according to the 2023 index.

This index evaluates the quality of life for employees working abroad, especially with families, and relies on data from over 500 cities all over the world. The ranking is based on factors like climate, schools and education, disease and sanitation standards, violence and crime, physical remoteness and ease of communications and socio-political environment.

The last of these rankings were published in 2019 where Pune and Hyderabad both shared the 143rd position.

In 2022, a Cost of Living City ranking was released evaluating the most expensive cities for international employees to live. Mumbai emerged as the most expensive Indian city with a rank of 127. It was followed by New Delhi (155), Chennai (177), Bengaluru (178), Hyderabad (192) and Pune at rank 201.
