The list also includes Mangalore at 13th place based on based on factors such as human capital, energy, water, transport, housing, healthcare, climate, office space availability and city culture, which constitute the basic eco-socio-economic parameters critical in determining the growth of the city.

While Delhi does not figure on this list, Noida and Gurgaon from the National Capital Region have been ranked 17th and 19th respectively.

The survey, conducted by Global Initiative for Restructuring Environment and Management (GIREM) and real estate consultancy firm DTZ, also found that smaller cities like Indore (5th), Bhubaneswar (6th) and Coimbatore (7th) are competing with top metros in the race to be ideal business destinations.

The list includes a total of 21 top business destination in the country. Ahmedabad has been ranked 8th, followed by Nagpur at 9th and Kochi at the 10th place.

Commenting on the findings of the report, GIREM Chairman, Sankey Prasad, said that few of the top 21 business destinations in India are already established while others have the potential to emerge major business destinations.

“The ranking provides companies across industries and sectors with insights for future investment opportunities,” Prasad added.

“With the metros already bursting at their seams, it is important to have options that are fresh for investments and conducive for business operations,” DTZ Chief Executive, Anshul Jain, said.

Jain further noted that “in order to relieve the burden on the established metro cities, it becomes all the more important to encourage the Tier II cities to grow up to their potential so as to meet a twin objective of decongesting metros and nurturing talent in Tier II cities.”

The others in the list include Chandigarh at 11th place, followed by Hyderabad (12), Vadodara (14), Jaipur (15), Kozhikode (16), Kolkata (18), Navi Mumbai (20) and Visakhapatnam (21).
