Urban Governance Index 2020

The Urban Governance Index is a report by Praja Foundation. According to the report, none of the states has managed to devolve all 18 municipal functions (such as solid waste management, water supply, promotion of education, etc.) to their urban local bodies as provided for by the 74th Constitutional Amendment Act, 1992. As a result the municipal bodies continue to depend on states for funding and decision making. In the 2020 Index, Odisha ranked first followed by Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Kerala.
