Indore: City may have bagged 8th position in list of 111 cities on ease of living index but people from other cities who live here feel that city needs to improve in certain areas. Muskan Mundra finds out what does Indore lack. Being an outsider, getting a convenient place to live is a tough task. Buildings are packed with local people because of whom we have to look for houses in outer areas.

Roads offer roller coaster rides. Roads remain under construction for months. This causes inconvenience.

Traffic mismanagement needs attention. Police check for license and helmets but traffic cops are absent where they are needed most.
Poonam Tiwari, 35, Ujjain (Max Life Insurance employee)
Frequent power cuts are irritating. It appears that electricity department waits for rain to occur to cut off power supply. Power cuts disrupt my work schedule as I don’t have inverter.

Poor sewer network, Indore’s age old problem, still persists. Waste water flows on roads to join nearest water source. Rivers are unclean as waste is dumped in them.
Atul Jahagirdar, 36, private job
Water scarcity every summer is frustrating. On other hand, lot of water goes waste due to leakage in supply lines, broken public taps and “I don’t care” attitude of residents.
