Delhi better place than London and New York: Study

New Delhi, Nov 12: National Capital, Delhi which has earned a bad name for its crime rate, traffic snarls and increasing population is still a far better place than World top cities like London, New York, Tokyo and Berlin.

According to an international survey, the national capital fares well in a number of ways than world's other top-class cities.

The Survey by LSE Cities, a research centre at the London School of Economics, studied different cities on different indicators like economy, population, society, governance, density, green space, environment and transport, says an India Today report.

In contrast to its dubious tag of crime capital, Delhi has a very low level of crime measured by the murder rate (homicides per 100,000 people). Bogota, Latin American city, witnesses 16.1 homicides per 100,000 people, while New York has over double the murder rate of Delhi.

Not only this, Delhi's projected increase in income per capita is one of the largest amongst the cities that were surveyed, says the report. Its average annual gross value added growth in the metro area during 2012-2030 will be 7 per cent (in London it will be 2.8 per cent, in Lagos 6.6 per cent, and in Tokyo only 1.1 per cent).

When it comes to rising population, the city does fairly well than other world cities. Delhi's population is expected to grow by 2 per cent during 2012 -2030.
