Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri today said, Ease of Living Index is a transformative initiative of the Ministry to help the cities assess livability as per national and global benchmark. He said, the index will encourage all cities to move towards an outcome based approach to urban planning and management. 

The Minister was speaking after inaugurating a day long National Dissemination Workshop on Ease of living Index 2018 for 111 cities in India, in New Delhi. Mr Puri said the Ease of living framework comprises four pillars namely institutional, Social, economic and physical. The Minister said, these indicators are used to measure adoption of innovative practices which are considered desirable for enhancing ease of living. 

The index will also help achieve various goals of sustainable development in urban planning. Mr Puri said this exercise marks a major milestone in India's goal to promote evidence based planning and action towards sustainable urbanization.

Based on the assessment of Ease of living Index 2018, the Minister also gave away awards to three best performing states Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Madhya Pradesh under AMRUT Mission.
