The position of New Delhi has recorded the highest decline in the entire Asia region. Mumbai has slipped two places to 119th position. 

Vienna of Australia has been ranked first in this list for the second time in a row.

The EIU has also cited in its report of India being at the bottom of the index of freedom of journalists. It said that cases of abuse against journalists in India have increased.

The study notes that overall Asian cities perform below average in the world's livable cities, Papua New Guinea's Port Moresby (135th), Pakistan's Karachi (136th) and Bangladesh's Dhaka (138th) are among the ten least suitable cities to live with.

The EIU has said that Mumbai slipped two places in the rankings due to a fall in cultural sector scores. On the other hand, New Delhi's position in the index has been weakened due to the decline in stability score due to an increase in cultural, environmental score and crime rate.

New Delhi got 56.3 points overall while Mumbai scored 56.2 points. Top-ranked Vienna got 99.1 points while Damascus (Syria), the lowest-ranked city in this index, got 30.7 points. Damascus ranked 140th on this index
