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.
