• India’s cities scored between 2.1 and 4.4 out of a total of 10. Thiruvananthapuram city retained its number one position in 2016.

• Pune came in at second, up two ranks over 2015 and Kolkata, third, same as 2015.

• The biggest gainer is Bhubaneswar. It was up by eight ranks and stood at the 10th position.

• This was on the back of a slew of reforms such as instituting municipal cadres, tiered spatial planning even at the ward level and a single window clearance process for development projects in conformity with plans.

• Jaipur benefited from the passage of the Rajasthan Urban Land (Certification of Titles) Bill that enabled better urban land utilization.

• As per the ASICS 2016, Chennai lost points as it turned back to the system of having indirect mayoral elections.
