It’s rare to spot an Indian city’s name in a World’s Best Cities list, but one Indian city has managed to make it, that too, for the second time.

The country’s capital, Delhi, was ranked as the 62nd best city in the world, according to list created by Resonance Consultancy Ltd. Delhi is the only Indian city to make it to the list. It also had a positive jump from last year’s 81st position to being at the 62nd spot.

Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter to share the good news, and congratulated the residents of the city.

“Such a good news for all Dilliwalas. All dilli walas have worked so hard in the last six years to make it happen. The world is noticing the positive changes happening in Delhi,” Kejriwal tweeted.


The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also tagged his deputy Manish Sisodia post in his tweet. “Congratulations to all the proud people of Delhi and @ArvindKejriwal for the leadership. Our beloved Delhi is ranked 62 in World’s Best cities. The only Indian city in the list. There is significant improvement from the past ranking i.e. 81,” Sisodia has posted earlier.

The Capital was described as one of the “few places on earth with the hectic, pulsating pace of Delhi, which explains its #18 spot for Place, including a #29 ranking for Sights & Landmarks.” “Indeed, Delhi is a city built upon or near the ruins of a previous city, and today visitors can trace through the eras, exploring centuries-old forts, tombs, shrines and mosques. Old Delhi is where to soak it all in while weaving in and out of the chaos, shopping for trinkets and handicrafts in the frenetic street bazaars and gaping in wonder at the Red Fort,” it added.

“Unsurprisingly, Delhi also ranks highly (#17) for Restaurants, and sampling everything you can is a must. Now, add a “click” to Delhi’s cacophony: despite its ancient roots the city is bursting into the new millennium with a #23 ranking for Promotion. Its rankings in Facebook Check-ins (#14), Google Trends (#13) and Google Search (#9) all reveal a city eager to show itself off to the world,” it said.
