    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Melbourne is followed by Austrian capital, Vienna and Canada's Vancouver in the second and third place.
    • No Indian city was ranked in the top ten or bottom ten in the most liveable city ranking.
    • As per the survey, the least liveable city was Damascus at 140th place.

    NEW YORK: Melbourne is the most liveable city in the world, followed by Austrian capital, Vienna and Canada's Vancouver in the second and third place respectively, reveals a survey.

    According to the Global Liveability Report compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), no Indian city was ranked in the top ten or bottom ten in the most liveable city ranking.

    Others in the 10 most liveable cities in the world include Toronto at the fourth place, followed by Calgary (5th), Adelaide (6th), Perth (7th), Auckland (8th), Helsinki (9th) and Hamburg (10th).

    According to the survey that covered 140 cities globally, though the rankings of top five cities remain unchanged, the past few years have seen increasing instability across the world, causing volatility in the scores of many cities.

    "While not a new phenomenon, the frequency and spread of terrorism have increased noticeably and become even more prominent," the report said, adding that "repeated attacks in France and the UK have had a contagion effect, raising terror alerts and lowering stability scores in cities across the region".

    Besides, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Turkey remain the subject of high-profile civil unrest and armed conflicts, while a number of other countries, such as Nigeria, continue to battle insurgent groups.

    "Even a relatively stable country such as the US has seen mounting civil unrest linked to the Black Lives Matter movement and the policies proposed by President Donald Trump," it said.

    EIU noted that overall, the global average liveability score has fallen 0.8 per cent to 74.8 per cent over the past five years.


    As per the survey, the least liveable city was Damascus at 140th place, followed by Lagos (139), Tripoli (138), Dhaka (137), Port Moresby (136), Algiers (135), Karachi (134), Harare (133), Douala (132) and Kiev (131).

    The rating quantifies the challenges that might be presented to an individual's lifestyle in any given location, and allows for direct comparison between locations.


    Every city is assigned a rating of relative comfort for over 30 qualitative and quantitative factors across five broad categories - stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

    Dhaka is no surprise. A horrible place to live and work. It's faster to walk than it's to drive there.

    Karachi has a population problem.

    Due to economic strains thanks our corrupt politicians. The economic migration has made Karachi overpopulated by every means.

    Liveable is from a western standard which don't apply in emerging countries.

    Lively vibrant and unique.

    That's Karachi

    Buddy you are a nice fellow.
    I will tell you where it got wrong.

    You saw Dhaka and Karachi and you thought wow i can piss many people off. Your intentions were to offend thus karma got you.

    Had you just searched for India with intentions out of patriotism you would not have created this thread.

    Chalen chore. Hojati hai ghalti. Kabhi anday se pehle murghi bhi ajati hai.

    And what about your qualification level genius?

    Mumbai is 115 and Delhi is 110.

    Learn to use google then post lies.

    Though nothing to be proud of, atleast we are not in the last 10.
