HYDERABAD: In what is yet another jewel in its crown, the `City of Pearls' has emerged as the numero uno city in India when it comes to offering the best quality of living standards in Mercer's Quality of Living Report 2015 that was released on Wednesday. 

Ranked 138th globally by the Mercer report, Hyderabad beat Pune (145th) to the top spot in India and left India's IT hub Bengaluru (146th), Chennai (151st), commercial capital Mumbai (152nd) and India's political capital New Delhi (154th) behind in the quality of living sweepstakes. 

"Indian cities have not made much progress on the quality of living scale, scoring nearly the same as they did last year. However, over time, Hyderabad has emerged as a city of choice due to factors such as improved options for international schools. Additionally, the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport is located 22 km from the city and offers a good range of international flights, which improves its ranking on account of public services," the release said.
