The core indicators are considered essential for assessing the performance management of city services and quality of life. The supporting indicators are given to promote best practices. 46 core indicators and 47 supporting indicators have been developed. The draft explains the data source alongside detailed explanation of the data indicator.
  • Profile Indicators: The list of profile indicators provides basic statistics & background information about the city. These indicators are to be used as informational reference about the city.

The cities would need to maintain the data online with the framework developed by the Ministry of Statistics & Program Implementation (MoSPI).
