5 Clean & Affordable Tier-II Cities In India
As the focus of homebuyers shifts from the fast-forward mode of living to a clean and green approach, how a city's real estate would perform largely depends on how dirt-free it is. Keeping that in mind we list five cities which have stood on top of the heap in the Urban Development Ministry's Swachh Survekshan-2016 Survey. The survey categorised 73 cities under four sub-sections of leaders, aspiring leaders, acceleration needed and slow movers.
This city in Karnataka, which was ranked number one among the 73 cities surveyed, scored 1,749 out of 2,000 numbers, based on which the rating was decided. Culturally-rich Mysore, which attracts a large number of tourists for the state every year, still offers affordable real estate.
With 1,750 numbers, this ancient Tamil Nadu city, also known as Trichy, stood at number three in the survey. Famous for its beautiful temple architecture, Tiruchirapalli would be an ideal city for those looking for spiritual freedom and a pollution-free environment.
Ranked fifth in the survey with 1,643 numbers, Vishakhapatnam, the financial capital of Andhra Pradesh, promises home buyers lovely views of scenic beauty. Property prices in the city have seen an uptrend in the recent past, as more and more shift base to cleaner pastures.
If one can find a business-friendly environment thriving in a clean city, it would only be natural to be drawn towards the real estate there. Gujarat's Surat is one such city. Ranked sixth in the survey with 1,605 marks, Surat real estate is shining like the diamonds the city is known for cutting and polishing.
Another Gujarat City that has been ranked seventh in the survey, Rajkot offers buyers everything that cities in this business-friendly state are famous for. While Rajkot's thriving jewellery industry provides numerous employment opportunities, the city's affordable property ensures more and more migrate here. A shining spot in the cleanliness survey would add to the value of real estate in Rajkot.
