The EoLI ranking by the Ministry of Urban and Housing Affairs is granted based on the evaluation of the quality of life, abilities, citizens perception and sustainability.

In the complete list released by the Ministry on Thursday, it was revealed that Kanpur managed to get 3.2 million citizen feedback, while social media hits were limited to 1.3 million only. A mean score was calculated based on the performance of Kanpur and the city ranked 28 on the list with 53.31 points.

Besides Kanpur, about 7 other districts in Uttar Pradesh found themselves listed in this list of Top 50 cities in India. All these place-holders were able to score over 50% points, except Bareilly which lurked behind at 30-50 point slab. This over-all state performance is a statement of ramped-up progress and improved municipal work in these districts.
