Updated : May 22, 2019 11:07 AM IST

An Oxford Economics research report published by the World Economic Forum has found that India has the top 10 fastest growing cities by GDP in the world. India's economy is projected to grow at 7.1 percent in fiscal year 2020 on the back of strong domestic consumption and investment but the GDP growth is a downward revision from the 7.4 percent estimated in January this year, according to the World Economic Situation and Prospects (WESP) 2019 mid-year report released by the UN. The Oxford Economics report predicts that the fastest growing cities will drive the growth of the global economy and the dominance of Indian cities in the list signals a shift in economic power from the West to the East. Here are the top 10 fastest growing cities:
