Ease of Living Index
Two Assessment Frameworks, viz. Ease of LivingIndex (EoLI) and Municipal
Performance Index (MPI) 2019 have been launched by the Ministry of Housing &
Urban Affairs to assess quality of life of citizens in 100 Smart Cities and
14 other Million Plus Cities.
Municipal Performance Index 2019:
Using it, the Ministry will assess the performance of municipalities
based on 5 enablers namely Service, Finance, Planning, Technology and
These 5 enablers have been further divided into 20 sectors which will be
evaluated across 100 indicators.
Ease of Living Index 2019:
EoLI 2019 will facilitate the assessment of ease of living of citizens
across three pillars: Quality of Life, Economic Ability and Sustainability
which are further divided into 14 categories across 50 indicators.
For the first time, as part of the Ease of Living Index Assessment, a
Citizen Perception Survey is being conducted on behalf of the Ministry
(which carries 30% of the marks of the Ease of Living Index).
