Objective of preparing the Urban Governance Index
The Urban Governance Index will help in mapping and monitoring the implementation of the urban governance reforms which looks at Democratic Empowerment and Accountability in urban governance across states in the country.
The Urban Governance Index (UGI) dashboard is an initiative to create an interactive and user-friendly online access to the data behind UGI. The idea is to democratise the usage of the index, wherein the user can input their own weightages into the UGI framework, and find out the respective results i.e., score and rank of the states. The user will also be able to compare the original score and rank, with the user’s changed score and rank for each state.
The Urban Governance Index framework consists of four themes, 13 subthemes and 42 indicators.
