The Ease of Living Index will be launched along with an Ease of Living Index dashboard on August 10 by Shri Hardeep S Puri, Minister of State (I/C), Housing & Urban Affairs. Apart from presenting the overall national ranking of 111 cities, the dashboard will present ranking of the cities across pillars, category, geographical zone and population classifications.

The event will be webcast live for states and cities to witness the launches from across the country.

Ease of Living framework comprises four pillars namely Institutional, Social, Economic and Physical which are further broken down into 15 categories and 78 indicators. The dashboard will also have a comparison feature that will allow users to analyze the performance across cities on various liveability parameters.

The Ease of Living Index is an initiative of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) to help cities assess their liveability vis-à-vis global and national benchmarks and encourage cities to move towards an 'outcome-based' approach to urban planning and management.

The Ease of Living assessment standards are closely linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will provide a strong impetus to India's effort for systematic tracking progress of SDGs in the urban areas.
