Edit: It is the total number of cars that exceed the next four I believe. Can't find the link though.

My bad numbet of vehicles in Chennai is not 10 lakh. But yeah the crux of the matter is total vehicles in NCR is much more than other cities. Number of cars more so. Which in my opinion is not something to be proud of at all.
Developed is not that city where more people own cars, but developed is that where more people don't need to own one.

Re: Chandigarh has most number of vehicles per head in India
The city by it's very nature attracted people with a certain minimum wealth from the day it came into being. Subsequently, the next 3 or 4 generations have only done better. It's quite common for each family member to have his/her own car.
It lacks the homogeneous nature of most Indian cities having people from every strata in close vicinity. A good percentage of domestic help lives in the periphery for example, and are not counted as a part of the city.
And I disagree with the fact that income is mainly from agriculture. The city has mostly people in service industry. Defense services and govt jobs form a big chunk. Businessmen too form a good portion now.
Look at the total population: 12 Lakhs. Even some towns in India have a bigger count. The way it was planned and the initial well to do lot that Chd attracted, are the biggest reasons for such skewed numbers.
