According to the 5th edition of Annual Survey of India’s City-Systems (ASICS) report released by Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy, a Bengaluru-based non-profit; Pune emerged to be the best amongst 23 other major cities.

It is the first time that Pune has topped this survey, leaving behind cities like Kolkata, Thiruvananthapuram, Bhubaneswar, and Surat.

While the above-stated cities are the top five best-governed cities, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Dehradun, Patna, and Chennai are listed at the bottom.

The survey’s objective is to evaluate the fundamental ability of a city’s institutions to deliver a better quality of life over the medium and long-term.

Vivek Anandan Nair, project lead on ASICS 2017, said,

This was on the back of improved performance on own revenue generation, higher capital expenditure per capita by the city and implementation of Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) reforms including appointment of an internal auditor and credit rating.

ASICS has even thrown light over the problems tackled by the authorities. The report also talks about,

Overall, India’s cities have continued to score low over the last three editions of ASICS, with average score improving marginally from 3.4 to 3.9. This indicates slow progress on fixing city systems. This is particularly worrisome, given the pace at which India is urbanising and the already poor state of public service delivery in our cities.
