INDIA CITIES HAPPINESS REPORT 2020 : WHAT IS DELHI’S POSITION?

The India Cities Happiness Report 2020 has covered thirty-four major cities estimating happiness across the country, the contributing factors to people’s happiness, the impact of COVID-19 on happiness, and insights from global thought leaders.

The study is based on a nationwide survey covering 13,000 people during October- November 2020 by Professor Rajesh K Pillania. He is known for his extensive research, jointly ranked number one in average research productivity among management faculty (including IIMs & IITs) in India between 1968 to 2014. John F. Helliwell, Co-Editor (with Jeffry Sachs and Richard Layard) of the World Happiness Report, Professor Emeritus, Vancouver School of Economics, University of British Columbia emphasizes that Rajesh Pillania and his team did a signal service in extending the scope of world happiness research by providing data for 36 Indian states in India Happiness Report 2020.

The India Cities Happiness Report 2020 further deepens understanding by monitoring the quality of life in 34 major cities. In the happiness rankings of cities, Ludhiana, Ahmedabad, and Chandigarh are the top three.

Among the Tier-I cities, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and New Delhi are among the top three whereas, among Tier-II cities, Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Surat are the top three cities in happiness rankings. The results show age group, education, and income level are overall positively related to happiness and marital status is negatively related to happiness, i.e. unmarried people are happier than married people in big cities. 

DELHI GOVT DISTRIBUTE DRY RATION TO STUDENTS UNDER MID-DAY MEAL SCHEMES

The spirit of India is quite resilient, and the impact of COVID-19 varies across cities. It varies from the worst possible to the best possible among individuals in the study. Bengaluru, Kochi, and Kolkata have shown the worst possible impact of COVID-19 on happiness. Francesc Miralles, Co-author of the Bestselling book Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life pinpoints people often believe that happiness is the absence of problems, and that’s a big mistake.
