      Scores are used to measure the broad categories such as Sanitation, Mobility etc that influence our quality of life in the city. Each indicator is scored between 0 and 10 based on specific benchmarks. A 10 means your ward meets the benchmark. Wherever possible, the benchmarks are the standards defined by Union or State law, such as air pollution limits. Other benchmarks are based on research into indian city life. Using benchmarks, the indicators avoid subjective debates over what conditions are "good" or "bad". The scores report how close your ward is to the standards promised by your government {0 being the farthest and 10, closest)
