For a city that was listed as the second cleanest in the country after Chandigarh in a survey conducted by the Union Ministry of Urban Development, here is something more to chew and ponder over.
Mysore has been given a high rating in the “AlphaWise City Vibrancy Index: A Guide to India's Urbanisation” by Morgan Stanley India.
Sheela Rathi and Ridham Desai of Morgan Stanley India, who are the authors of the study, pointed out that the AlphaWise City Vibrancy Index is a measure of the drivers of urbanisation and incorporates key ingredients such as infrastructure, job opportunities, modern consumer services and the city's ability to mobilise savings.
The vibrancy index reveals the relative “vibrancy”/urbanisation levels of 200 cities and towns of India and could be used to ascertain the prospects for real estate prices.
“But the biggest surprise of the launch product”, according to Sheela Rathi and Ridham Desai, is that Mysore is ranked number two among India's 50 cities.
The vibrancy report pointed out that urbanisation was a big driver of sector trades and measuring the levels of drives and rate of change in urbanisation is important from this perspective.
