Annual Survey of India's City-Systems (ASICS)

ASICS is India's only independent benchmarking of cities using a systemic framework. It evaluates India's city-systems: the complex, mostly-invisible factors (such as laws, policies, institutions, processes and accountability mechanisms) that strongly influence the quality of life in India's cities. Further, it benchmarks our city-systems against global counterparts. In its third year in 2015, ASICS evaluates 21 Indian cities and provides city administrators and policymakers with a diagnosis of systemic reforms needed in their respective cities.
Think of it as a diagnostic health-check of cities.
