Economist Intelligence Unit[edit]

In 2017, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) released Top 10 cheapest cities in the world which 4 of it were from India: Kolkata (3rd), Chennai (6th), Mumbai (7th) and New Delhi (9th) based on the cost of 160 products and services. However, these rankings are far from reality and Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi are the most expensive cities in India. Eastern Indian capital cities like Kolkata, Bhubaneswar and Southern city like Hyderabad are much cheaper.[1][2]
