The report released by New World Wealth had only listed the top 15 richest cities and no city from West Bengal features in this list. However, in 2014, The Brookings Institution had released a report which pegged Kolkata's per capita GDP at $1,110 compared to Mumbai's $1,990. Even though, these numbers are old they tell us the size of Kolkata's economy relative to Mumbai's.
