The funding for the healthcare sector needs to be stepped up greatly and it has to be ensured that there is equity in the delivery of healthcare
- Dr Harsh Vardhan

“The massive increase of 137 percent in budgetary allocation for the sector will not only help strengthen our healthcare infrastructure but will also focus on areas of preventive health and holistic well-being.”
06 MAR 2021

Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Dr Harsh Vardhan addressed the inaugural session of TechBharat 2021, today. Laghu Udyog Bharati and IMS Foundation have organized the 2nd edition of the conclave bringing together stakeholders from the HealthTech & Edutech sector on a virtual platform. Techbharat is facilitating interactions & deliberations between thousands of domestic & global participants, including policy makers, government representatives, industry members, investors & start-ups to nurture resourceful partnerships and boost growth in the sectors.

In his address Dr Harsh Vardhan said: “The funding for the healthcare sector needs to be stepped up greatly and it has to be ensured that there is equity in the delivery of healthcare. A radical improvement in government facilities for the poor, rather than only glitzy hospitals for the well-heeled along with the recent moves to lower prices of essential drugs and health equipment are steps in the right direction.”

Reiterating the government’s commitment towards health & wellbeing of the citizens, he highlighted the highest ever funding for the sector in the Union Budget 2021-22. The Union Minister said, “The massive increase of 137 percent in budgetary allocation for the sector will not only help strengthen our healthcare infrastructure but will also focus on areas of preventive health and holistic well-being.” He added,  “The total sum allocated to the sector of more than Rs 2.2 lakh Crore, will be of immense help to the country at this critical juncture in ensuring healthier lives of our citizens while at the same time opening up enormous growth and employment opportunities.”

He further said: “Under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji, the government has not only fulfilled its duty, by providing relief to the citizens in the unprecedented times of COVID-19, but has also turned the crisis into an opportunity by embarking on a mission to establish an Aatma Nirbhar Bharat to further growth & development.”

Emphasizing on how the learning from the country’s yearlong fight with COVID19 has helped shape the Union Budget, Dr Harsh Vardhan said “Health has been identified as one of the key pillars to drive growth in the country.” He added, “Expansion of integrated health information portal to all States & UTs to connect all public health labs, operationalization of new public health units and strengthening of existing ones at multiple points of entry in the country, setting up of 15 health emergency operation Centres and two mobile hospitals along with the setting up of a National Institution for One Health, regional research platform for WHO South East Asia region office, 9 Biosafety Level 3 laboratories and 4 Regional institutes on the lines of National Institute of Virology, are some of the achievements which the country can be proud of.”

Advocating for an integrated approach towards healthcare to provide holistic healthcare services, the Union Minister said,  “Another realisation which has emerged over the years and gathered momentum during the pandemic has been to go back to our roots, to opt for a system of medicine that takes care of the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of an individual.” He further added, “There is a need to incorporate science-backed, research-based benefits of our traditional practices of Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha in the delivery of healthcare and encourage our medical fraternity to incorporate these as part of a holistic healthcare package.”

He further said: “I would also like to highlight the contribution of the Mission Poshan 2.0 scheme which strengthens nutritional content, delivery, outreach and outcomes. This will merge supplementary nutritional programmes and Poshan Abhiyan and is proposed to adopt and intensify strategy to improve nutritional outcomes across 112 aspirational districts. Again highlighting a holistic approach towards healthcare adopted by the Government.”

Touching upon other health-related schemes he said: “Another important vertical which has been addressed is the renewed focus on Jal Jeevan Mission, the second phase of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Urban) and the Clean Air Initiative which target the holistic health of India’s citizens as these schemes are designed to reduce the disease burden of communicable diseases by curbing their transmission and prevent those caused by pollution.

He added “Similarly, the Pradhan Mantri Aatma Nirbhar Swasthya Bharat Yojana,with a massive  outlay of Rs 64,180 crore over the next 6 years, will develop capacities of primary, secondary and tertiary care, health care systems, develop institutions for detection and cure of new and emerging diseases and strengthen the existing National Health Mission independent of it. The scheme will strengthen 17,000 rural and 11,000 urban health and wellness centres, set up integrated public health labs in all districts and 3,382 block public health units in 11 States establish critical care hospital blocks in 602 districts and 12 central institutions.”

Dr Harsh Vardhan concluded the session by saying “My vision for India 2022 cannot but be the one visualised for the nation by Hon’ble Prime Minister Sh Narendra Modi Ji. We have to work in unison to actualise his dream of a strong, flourishing nation that is at the forefront of the comity of nations by 2022. To arrive at the destination ‘New India’ a lot needs to be done, but if every citizen lends his shoulder to the wheel, the goal should be well within our reach.”

Minister of Health & Family Welfare, Government of Karnataka, Dr K Sudhakar, Member of Parliament, Shri Tejasvi Surya, President, Laghu Udyog Bharati, Shri P S Srikanta Dutta & Chairman, IMS Foundation, Shri H V S Krishna were also present for the inaugural session.

Text of PM's keynote address at CERAWeek


Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has addressed the CERAWeek Global Energy and Environment Leadership Award event. This Award recognises environmental leadership. About leadership, it is commonly said that the best way to show it is through action.

Prime Minister's Office
Text of PM's keynote address at CERAWeek
05 MAR 2021

Thank you, Doctor Dan Yergin, for that kind introduction. Thank you all, distinguished guests for being here. 

Namaskar! 

It is with great humility that I accept the CERAWeek Global Energy and Environment Leadership Award. I dedicate this award to the people of our great Motherland, India. I dedicate this award to the glorious tradition of our land that has shown the way when it comes to caring for the environment.

 Friends,

This Award recognises environmental leadership. About leadership, it is commonly said that the best way to show it is through action. There is no doubt that when it comes to care for the environment, the people of India are leaders. This has been the case for centuries. In our culture, nature and divinity are closely linked. Our Gods and Goddesses are associated with some or the other tree and animal.  These trees and animals are also sacred. You can pick literature from any state, in any language. You will find many examples of the close bond  people and nature  have enjoyed.

Friends,

In Mahatma Gandhi, we have one of the greatest environment champions to have ever lived. If humanity had followed the path given by him, we would not face many of the problems we do today. I would urge you all to visit Mahatma Gandhi's home in the coastal city of Porbandar, Gujarat. Next to his home, you will get very practical lessons on water conservation. There are underground tanks constructed over 200 years ago. They were built to save rain water.

Friends,

Climate change and calamities are major challenges today. Both are interlinked. There are two ways to fight them. One is through policies, laws, rules and orders. These have their own importance no doubt. I can share with you some examples: Share of non-fossil Sources in India's installed capacity of electricity has grown to 38 percent now. We have moved to Bharat - 6 emission norms since April 2020. This is equal to Euro- 6 fuel. India is working to increase the share of natural gas from the current 6% to 15% by 2030. LNG is being promoted as a fuel. We just launched a National Hydrogen Mission last month for use of hydrogen as fuel. Recently a scheme called PM KUSUM was announced. This will promote an equitable and decentralized model of solar energy generation. But, there is something beyond the world of policies, laws, rules and orders. The most powerful way to fight climate change is behavioural change. There is a very famous story many of you would have heard of. A small child was given a torn world map. The child was told to fix it thinking it could never be done. But, the child actually did successfully. When asked how the child did so, the child said, at the back of the world map was the figure of a man. All the child did was to assemble the figure of the man. And because of that, the world map also got assembled. The message is clear - let us fix ourselves and the world will be a better place.

Friends,

This spirit of behaviour change is a key part of our traditional habits, which teach us consumption with compassion. A mindless throw away culture is not a part of our ethos. Look at our farming methods or our foods. Look at our mobility patterns or in energy consumption patterns. I am proud of our farmers, who are constantly using modern techniques of irrigation. There is growing awareness on improving soil health and reducing use of pesticides. Today the world is focussing on fitness and wellness. There is a growing demand for healthy and organic food. India can drive this global change through our spices, our Ayurveda products and more. Likewise, take eco-friendly mobility. You would be delighted to know that in India, we are working on metro networks in 27 towns and cities.

Friends,

For large scale behaviour change, we need to offer solutions that are innovative, affordable and powered by public participation. Let me give you an example. The people of India decided to embrace LED bulbs on a scale that has never been seen before. As on first March 2021, Around 37 million LED bulbs are being used. This has saved costs and energy. Over 38 million tonnes of carbon dioxide have been reduced per year. There is another example of India's Give It Up Movement. A simple request was made to people to give up their LPG subsidy for the benefit of the more needy people. Several people across India voluntarily gave up their subsidy. This played a major role in India being able to provide smoke free kitchens to lakhs of households. LPG coverage in India has seen a remarkable growth from 55% in 2014 to 99.6% today. Women have been the major gainers due to this. These days I am seeing one more very positive change. Waste to wealth is becoming the buzzword in India. Our citizens are coming up with unique recycling models in diverse sectors. This would give a boost to the circular economy. Our country is boosting waste-to-wealth generation under Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation initiatives. 5000 compressed biogas plants will be set up by 2024 with a production target of 15 MMT. It would help the environment and further human empowerment.

 Friends,

There is growing acceptance to ethanol across India. Based on people's response, we have decided to advance the target of 20% blending of ethanol in petrol by 2025, from the earlier 2030.

Friends,

It would make you all happy that over the last seven years, India's forest cover has grown significantly. The population of lions, tigers, leopards and water fowls has grown. These are great indicators of positive behavioural changes. It is these changes that convince us that India is well on track to achieve its Paris Agreement targets well before the target date of 2030.

Friends,

India's vision for environmental transitions includes working with like-minded countries. The initial success of the International Solar Alliance has demonstrated how serious India is when it comes to making efforts for a better planet. We will keep making such efforts in the future. This is in line with Mahatma Gandhi's principle of trusteeship. At the core ofTrusteeship is collectiveness, compassion and responsibility. Trusteeship also means using resources responsibly. Mahatma Gandhi rightly said: I quote. "We may utilise the gifts of Nature just as we choose but in her books, the debits are always equal to the credits". Unquote. Nature keeps a simple balance sheet.  Whatever is available or credited can be used or debited. But this has to be distributed properly because if we over consume resources we are snatching it from someone else. It is on similar lines that India is speaking about climate justice to help fight climate change.

Friends,

Now is the time to think logically and ecologically. After all, this is not about me or you. It is about our planet's future. We owe this to our coming generations. I once again thank you for the award.

Namaste.

PLI in 13 sectors demonstrates government’s commitment: PM

PLI benefits the entire ecosystem associated with the sector: PM

Speed and scale have to be increased to boost manufacturing : PM

Make in India, Make for the world : PM

India has become a big brand all over the world, chalk out strategies to leverage the newfound trust: PM
05 MAR 2021

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi addressed a webinar on Production Linked Incentives scheme organized by Department of Industry and International Trade and NITI Aayog through video conference.

Speaking on the steps taken to boost trade and industry in this year’s Union Budget, the Prime Minister said that over the past 6-7 years, several successful efforts have been made to encourage Make in India at different levels. He stressed on the need to take a big leap, increase the speed and scale to boost manufacturing. He cited examples around the world where countries have accelerated the development of the country by increasing their manufacturing capacities. He said increasing manufacturing capacities would increase Employment Generation in the country proportionally.

The Prime Minister said the Government’s thinking is clear - Minimum Government, Maximum Governance and expects Zero Effect, Zero Defect. He said the Government is working at every level to promote the industry like Ease of Doing Business, reducing the compliance burden, creating multimodal infrastructure to reduce logistics costs, constructing district level export hubs. He said the government believes that government interference in everything creates more problems rather than solutions. Therefore, Self-Regulation, Self-Attesting, Self-Certification are being emphasized. He emphasized the need to make Indian companies and manufacturing being done in India, globally competitive and also, to create global recognition for our production cost, products, quality and efficiency. “We have to attract cutting edge technology and maximum investment in the sectors related to our core competency” , he said .

Underlining the difference between the earlier schemes and the schemes of the current government, the Prime Minister said, earlier, industrial Incentives used to be open ended input based subsidies, now they have been made targeted and performance based through a competitive process.  The Prime Minister said 13 sectors have been brought under Production Linked Incentives for the first time. PLI benefits the entire ecosystem associated with the sector. With PLI in auto and pharma, there will be very less foreign dependence related to auto parts, medical equipment and raw materials of medicines. He added that the energy sector will be modernized in the country with the help of Advanced Cell Batteries, Solar PV modules and Specialty Steel. Similarly, the PLI for the textile and food processing sector will benefit the entire agriculture sector.

The Prime Minister remarked that it is a matter of pride that following India's proposal, the United Nations has declared the year 2023 as the International Year of Millets. He said more than 70 countries came to support India's proposal and unanimously accepted it in the UN General Assembly. He said this is also a big opportunity for our farmers. He urged to start a worldwide campaign in 2023 on the nutritional potential of millets or coarse grains to protect people from getting sick. He said that the demand for millets at home and abroad will increase rapidly with the announcement of the International Year of Millets by the UN in 2023 and this will greatly benefit our farmers. He also urged the Agriculture and Food Processing Sector to take full advantage of this opportunity.

The Prime Minister highlighted that in this year's budget, a provision of about 2 lakh crore rupees has been made for schemes related to the PLI scheme. An average of 5 % of production is given as incentive. This means that PLI schemes will lead to production worth $ 520 billion in India in the next five years. It is also estimated that sectors for which the PLI scheme has been created will witness doubling of the workforce.

The Prime MInister said that PLI related announcements are being implemented with speed. He said recently approved PLI schemes in IT hardware and Telecom equipment manufacturing will lead to tremendous increase in production and domestic value addition. IT hardware is estimated to achieve 3 trillion rupees worth production in 4 years and domestic value addition is expected to rise from current 5-10 percent to 20-25 percent in 5 years. Similarly telecom equipment manufacturing will witness an increase of about  2.5 lakh crore rupees in 5 years. We should be in a position to export worth 2 lakh crore from this, said the Prime Minister.

In the Pharma sector, the Prime Minister expect more than 15 thousand crore rupees investment in next 5-6 years under PLI leading to 3 lakh crore in pharma sale and export increase worth 2 lakh crore

The Prime Minister asserted that the way India is serving humanity today, India has become a big brand all over the world. India's credibility and India's identity is constantly reaching new heights. He said the brand of India is continuously reaching new heights. He said trust has increased in our medicines, our medical professionals and our Medical Equipments across the world. To honor this trust, he urged the pharma sector to work on chalking out long-term strategy to take advantage of this. He said the PLI scheme was launched last year to incentivise manufacturing of mobile phones and electronic components in India. Even during Pandemic, the sector manufactured goods worth Rs 35000 crore last year, saw a fresh investment of about Rs 1300 crore and created thousands of new jobs in this sector.

The Prime Minister said the PLI Scheme would make a major impact to the country's MSMEs ecosystem by creating the anchor units in every sector that will need a new supplier base across the entire value chain. He urged the industry to join and take advantage of the PLI scheme. He said the focus of the industry should be on creating Best Quality Goods for the country and the world. He urged the industry to innovate according to the needs of the fast changing world, increase our participation in R&D, upgrading the manpower skills and use of new technology.

Today, India is a leading nation with the highest number of higher education institutions across the globe with significant progress in the last few years in terms of enrolment in higher education which now stands at 37.4 million. He also highlighted the achievements of the Government in addressing the gender gap in higher education, wherein now women constitute 48.6% of the total enrolment.

Shri Pokhriyal said new reforms have been brought through NEP 2020 in the Indian Education system under the able leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. Speaking on NEP, he said it stresses on transforming Indian Higher Education into a knowledge superpower in the 21st century. It also has a forward-looking vision for holistic and multidisciplinary education, eliminating the rigid separation of streams. It paves the way towards internationalisation of education and encourages top world-ranked universities to open campuses in India. The future roadmap for the implementation of the policy needs active participation of all stakeholders, he added.

ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स -2020 तथा नगर निगम कार्य निष्पादन सूचकांक 2020 की घोषणा
04 MAR 2021
      केंद्रीय आवासन और शहरी कार्य राज्यमंत्री (स्वतंत्र प्रभार) श्री हरदीप सिंह पुरी ने आज एक ऑनलाइन आयोजन में ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स (ईओएलआई) 2020 और नगर पालिका कार्य निष्पादन सूचकांक (एमपीआई) 2020 की अंतिम रैंकिंग जारी की। आवासन और शहरी कार्य मंत्रालय में सचिव श्री दुर्गा शंकर मिश्रा और उनके मंत्रालय के वरिष्ठ अधिकारी भी इस आयोजन में उपस्थित थे।
      ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स 2020 की उन शहरों के लिए घोषणा की गई जिनकी जनसंख्या दस लाख से अधिक और दस लाख से कम है। वर्ष 2020 में आयोजित मूल्यांकन प्रक्रिया में 111 शहरों ने भाग लिया। विश्लेषण में इन शहरों को 10 लाख से अधिक जनसंख्या वाले शहरों और 10 लाख से कम आबादी वाले शहरों के रूप में स्मार्ट सिटी कार्यक्रम के तहत सभी शहरों के साथ श्रेणीबद्ध किया गया। 
      10 लाख से अधिक आबादी वाले शहरों की श्रेणी में बेंगलुरु सर्वश्रेष्ठ प्रदर्शन करने वाले शहर के रूप में उभरा, इसके बाद पुणे, अहमदाबाद, चेन्नई, सूरत, नवी मुंबई, कोयंबटूर, वडोदरा, इंदौर और ग्रेटर मुंबई का स्थान रहा। 10 लाख से कम आबादी वाली श्रेणी में शिमला ईज ऑफ लिविंग में सर्वोच्च स्थान पर रहा, इसके बाद भुवनेश्वर, सिलवासा, काकीनाडा, सलेम, वेल्लोर, गांधीनगर, गुरुग्राम, दावणगेरे, और तिरुचिरापल्ली रहे।
      इसी प्रकार ईओएलआई इंडेक्स की तरह, एमपीआई 2020 के तहत मूल्यांकन ढांचे में जनसंख्या के आधार पर नगरपालिकाओं को दस लाख से अधिक जनसंख्या वाली नगरपालिका और 10 लाख से कम आबादी वाले नगरपालिकाओं में श्रेणीबद्ध किया गया है। इंदौर सबसे अधिक रैंक वाली नगरपालिका के रूप में उभरा है, इसके बाद सूरत और भोपाल का स्थान रहा है। दस लाख से कम आबादी वाली श्रेणी में, नई दिल्ली नगरपालिका परिषद शीर्ष स्थान पर रही, इसके बाद तिरुपति और गांधीनगर का स्थान रहा।
      एमपीआई द्वारा 111 नगरपालिकाओं (दिल्ली का अलग से एनडीएमसी और 3 नगर निगमों के लिए मूल्यांकन किया गया) की पाँच वर्टिकलों में क्षेत्रवार किए गए प्रदर्शन की जांच की गई। इन पांच वर्टिकलों में कुल मिलाकर 20 क्षेत्र और 100 संकेतक शामिल हैं। एमपीआई के तहत पाँच वर्टिकल हैं- सेवाएँ, वित्त, नीति, प्रौद्योगिकी और शासन।
      ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स (ईओएलआई) एक मूल्यांकन उपकरण है जो जीवन की गुणवत्ता और शहरी विकास के लिए विभिन्न पहलों के प्रभाव का आकलन करता है। यह जीवन की गुणवत्ता, शहर की आर्थिक क्षमता, स्थिरता और लचीलापन के आधार पर देश भर के प्रतिभागी शहरों की व्यापक समझ उपलब्ध कराता है। इस मूल्यांकन में सिटीजन पर्सेप्शन सर्वे (सीपीएस) के माध्यम से नगर के प्रशासन द्वारा उपलब्ध कराई गई सेवाओं के बारे में नागरिकों के दृष्टिकोण भी शामिल हैं।
      नगरपालिका कार्य प्रदर्शन सूचकांक (एमपीआई) को ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स के सहायक के रूप में लॉन्च किया गया था। यह सेवाओं, वित्त, नीति, प्रौद्योगिकी और शासन के सभी क्षेत्रों में नगरपालिकाओं में स्थानीय शासन प्रणाली की जांच करता है। यह स्थानीय शासन प्रणाली में जटिलताओं का सरलीकरण और मूल्यांकन करने के साथ-साथ पारदर्शिता और जवाबदेही के लोकाचार को भी बढ़ावा देता है।
      दोनों सूचकांक शहरी जीवन के विभिन्न मापदंडों के बारे में पूरे देश के शहरों के कार्य प्रदर्शन का पता लगाने के प्रयास का प्रतिनिधित्व करते हैं। ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स परिणामी संकेतकों की पुष्टि करता है, जबकि नगरपालिका प्रदर्शन सूचकांक सक्षम इनपुट मापदंडों को ग्रहण करता है। ये सूचकांक जीवन की बेहतर गुणवत्ता, बुनियादी ढांचे का निर्माण, शहरीकरण की चुनौतियों का समाधान करने के प्रयासों के आधार पर शहरों का समग्र मूल्यांकन उपलब्ध कराते हैं।
      इन सूचकांकों से प्राप्त की गई जानकारी सरकार की अंतराल की पहचान करने, संभावित अवसरों की तलाश करने और स्थानीय शासन प्रणाली में दक्षता बढ़ाने में मदद कर सकती हैं ताकि नागरिकों का जीवन बेहतर बनाया जा सके और व्यापक विकास परिणामों को पूरा किया जा सके। इन मूल्यांकनों का ढांचा आवासन और शहरी विकास मंत्रालय ने एक ज्ञान भागीदार के रूप में प्रतिस्पर्धात्मकता संस्थान के साथ मिलकर तैयार किया था।
ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स (ईओएलआई)
      ईओएलआई 2020 इस सूचकांक में सिटीजन पर्सेप्शन सर्वे के साथ ढांचे को मजबूती देते हुए अपने दायरे को मजबूत बनाता है। इस सर्वेक्षण का भारांक 30 प्रतिशत रखा जाता है। इसलिए, यह उन परिणामों की जांच करता है, जो शिक्षा, स्वास्थ्य, आवास और आश्रय, डब्ल्यूएएसएच और एसडब्ल्यूएम, गतिशीलता, रक्षा और सुरक्षा, मनोरंजन, आर्थिक विकास का स्तर, आर्थिक अवसर, पर्यावरण, ग्रीन स्पेस और भवन, ऊर्जा खपत, और शहर का लचीलापन जैसी 13 श्रेणियों में जीवन की गुणवत्ता, आर्थिक क्षमता, स्थिरता के स्तंभों माध्यम से मौजूदा जीवन की स्थिति को बढ़ावा देने वाले परिणामों की जांच करता है। इन श्रेणियों का समग्र परिणाम में 70 प्रतिशत योगदान है।
      सिटीजन पर्सेप्शन सर्वे (सीपीएस) को सेवा की आपूर्ति के संदर्भ में अपने शहर के नागरिकों के अनुभव को मान्यता देने में मदद के लिए शुरू किया गया था। यह मूल्यांकन 16 जनवरी, 2020 से 20 मार्च, 2020 तक आयोजित किया गया था। इस सर्वेक्षण में 111 शहरों के कुल 32.2 लाख नागरिकों ने भाग लिया। भुवनेश्वर का सीपीएस स्कोर सबसे अधिक था, उसके बाद सिलवासा, दावणगेरे, काकीनाडा, बिलासपुर और भागलपुर का स्थान रहा।
      ईओएलआई और एमपीआई के संशोधित संस्करण के लिए कार्यप्रणाली और दृष्टिकोण फरवरी 2019 में आवासन और शहरी कार्य मंत्रालय द्वारा जारी किए गए थे। आवश्यक रूप से ईओएलआई की रिपोर्ट का उद्देश्य 111 शहरों में जीवन की गुणवत्ता, आर्थिक क्षमता और स्थिरता के लिए 13 श्रेणियों में 49 संकेतक के साथ भारतीय नागरिकों का मापन करना है। ईओएलआई मुख्य रूप से सतत विकास लक्ष्यों की उपलब्धि सहित भारत के शहरी विकास परिणामों में तेजी लाने का प्रयास करता है। सूचकांक से प्राप्त निष्कर्ष साक्ष्य-आधारित नीति निर्माण में मार्ग दर्शन करने में मदद कर सकते हैं। यह शहरों के बीच स्वस्थ प्रतिस्पर्धा को बढ़ावा देने के साथ-साथ उन्हें अपने साथियों से कुछ सीखने और अपने विकास गति को आगे बढ़ाने में प्रोत्साहन प्रदान करते हैं।
नगर निगम का प्रदर्शन सूचकांक 2020 (एमपीआई)
 
      ईओएलआई के दायरे को बढाकर इसे अधिक मजबूत बनाने के लिए, देश में पहली बार नगरपालिका कार्य प्रदर्शन सूचकांक मूल्यांकन भी शुरू किया गया। ईज ऑफ लिविंग इंडेक्स सूचकांक के एक परिणाम को मापता है, जबकि नगर पालिका कार्य प्रदर्शन सूचकांक उन घटकों पर ध्यान केंद्रित करता है जो उन परिणामों को पैदा करते हैं। नगर पालिका कार्य प्रदर्शन उन तत्वों की पहचान करने का काम करता है जो सेवा वितरण तंत्र, योजना, वित्तीय प्रणालियों और शासन प्रक्रिया में कुशल स्थानीय शासन को रोकते हैं।
      नगरपालिका कार्य प्रदर्शन सूचकांक भारतीय नगर पालिकाओं की उनके निर्धारित कार्यों में कार्य प्रदर्शन का आकलन और विश्लेषण करने का एक प्रयास है। एक नगर पालिका की जिम्मेदारियां वर्टिकल श्रृंखला में फैली होती हैं, जिनमें शहरी योजना जैसे जटिल मूलभूत जनसेवाओं का प्रावधान भी शामिल है। एमपीआई की मुख्य विशेषताएं नीचे दी गई हैं।
      नगरपालिका कार्य प्रदर्शन सूचकांक नगरपालिकाओं के कार्यक्षमता और उनकी विकास क्षमताओं की सीमा के बारे में सक्षम जानकारी प्रदान करता है। सूचकांक के माध्यम से, नागरिक अपने स्थानीय सरकार के प्रशासन को बेहतर ढंग से समझ सकते हैं, जो पारदर्शिता का निर्माण करता है और प्रमुख हितधारकों में विश्वास पैदा करता है।
      इस ढांचे में 20 विभिन्न क्षेत्र शामिल हैं। जिनके नाम हैं- शिक्षा, स्वास्थ्य, जल और अपशिष्ट जल, एसडब्ल्यूएम और स्वच्छता, पंजीकरण और परमिट, बुनियादी ढांचा, राजस्व प्रबंधन, व्यय प्रबंधन, राजकोषीय जिम्मेदारी, राजकोषीय विकेंद्रीकरण, डिजिटल प्रशासन, डिजिटल पहुंच, डिजिटल साक्षरता, योजना तैयार करना, योजना लागू करना, योजना प्रवर्तन, पारदर्शिता और जवाबदेही, मानव संसाधन, भागीदारी और प्रभावशीलता।
      शीर्ष दस रैंक वाले शहरों का विवरण नीचे दिया गया है। दोनों सूचकांकों के तहत https://eol.smartcities.gov.in पर रैंकिंग ऑनलाइन देखी जा सकती है।
