As part of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (MoHUA)’s Ease of Living (EoL) index assessment, the Kohima Smart City Development Limited (KSCDL) launched a Citizen Perception Survey at Kohima Municipal Council (KMC) office here Saturday. The survey, which would be conducted till the end of February 2020, is to assess feedback from the citizens on ease of living in their city.

Addressing a press conference, KSCDL chief executive officer (CEO) Kovi Meyase informed that citizens could log on to and share feedback.

Stating that citizens’ participation was very vital, CEO appealed to all responsible citizens to participate in the survey, which he said would help KSCDL to feed accurate data to the ministry.

Kohima ranked 110 out of 111 cities assessed in 2018. As the second edition of the Ease of Living (EoL) 2019 begins, Meyase informed that 70% of the data would be based on the data provided by the government agencies while 30% would be based on citizen’s participation. He exuded confidence that Kohima would obtain better rank this time.

CEO said ease of living assessment would be done on three parameters – quality of life, economic ability and sustainability. Senior manager (planning) and nodal officer EoL and MPI, Zakiekuoto Kiso also appealed the citizens to give the real projection so that KMC could provide proper information to the ministry.
