Chandigarh is one of the healthy cities in India Apr 14

According to a survey conducted by a private soap manufacturing company, Chandigarh comes at the fourth rank as per child health quotient. The city beautiful closely follows Lucknow and Kolkata, both cities at the top place, and Bangalore at the second place.

Though the mothers in Chandigarh are perceptibly happy with their child’s growth, immunity and resistance, which incidentally scores higher than Delhi, they have shown dissatisfaction with the weight gain parameter. The city, however, slipped to the fourth position on the factor of cleanliness of surroundings as just a couple of years ago Chandigarh was ranked the cleanest city in the country during a survey conducted by the same company in 2007.

The mothers of 17 state capitals were surveyed to gauge the perception that mothers have with regard to the health of their children. The mothers in the cities of Lucknow and Kolkata were most satisfied with the health of their child with CHI of 109 which is way above the national average of 100.

Following closely are Bangalore with Chi of 108 and Chandigarh with CHI 107.
