National capital New Delhi has been featured in the world's 100 top-performing cities.
In fact, according to the list compiled by Resonance Consultancy, Delhi is the only Indian city to figure on the list.
Delhi's ranking in the annual survey has improved from 81 last year. Responding to the new ranking, Kejriwal took to Twitter to say: "Such a good news for all Dilliwalas. All dilli walas have worked so hard in the last six years to make it happen. The world is noticing the positive changes happening in Delhi."
Resonance Consultancy report noted: 'Chaotic, mind-bendingly sprawling and layered like few cities on earth, Delhi is a sensory bounty for the prepared.'
The report further says: "There are few places on earth with the hectic, pulsating pace of Delhi, which explains its number 18 spot for Place, including a number 29 ranking for Sights & Landmarks."
"Indeed, Delhi is a city built upon or near the ruins of a previous city, and today visitors can trace through the eras, exploring centuries-old forts, tombs, shrines and mosques."
"Old Delhi is where to soak it all in while weaving in and out of the chaos, shopping for trinkets and handicrafts in the frenetic street bazaars and gaping in wonder at the Red Fort.
"Unsurprisingly, Delhi also ranks highly (number 17) for restaurants, and sampling everything you can is a must. Now, add a 'click' to Delhi’s cacophony: despite its ancient roots the city is bursting into the new millennium with a number 23 ranking for promotion."
"Its rankings in Facebook Check-ins (number 14), Google Trends (number 13) and Google Search (#9) all reveal a city eager to show itself off to the world."
