Amenities are the essential infrastructure that makes you comfortable. It can be the desirable features which should be available at your living place.

Data on the educational facilities, health, community space, children play area, religious building, informal shop area etc on the state, city, slum and ward wise is reported in the panel.


In education, we focus on the learning arrangements in the living area. It reflects on the moral & intellectual instructions available.

Here we gives attention to the type of pre-primary school available and used by the children of the household will be ascertained and documented.

Educational facilities will help to assess the exposure to the knowledge and the life management skills. The access and the usage percentage will be a tool for predicting the intervention strategies.

In reporting panel we will give the analyzed percentage and the number of the households using the different educational facilities with the usage statistics in the state, city, slum and ward.


Health can be defined as the situation free from illness. As per the Indian constitution, it is the state's responsibility to provide health facilities in the area where the people lives and is the part of the social assistance.

Here in the exercise, as per the directions of the Indian Government, we assess the types of the health facilities available and its access by the household. Health vulnerability is also the part of the poverty. So it can indicates proneness to poverty. Access statistics displays the health awareness statistics of the community.

In the panel, we record the types of the health facility available and its access by the household. If more than one type of health facility is accessible, the facilities used most frequently will be recorded

Community space:

Simply community space refers to the place or area used and accessible for all citizens in a particular area. Generally In India, this space can be used for the educational & recreational activities.

Community space facilities reflect not just the social infrastructure available in the area, but also the social relation and the social nature of the citizens. For a socially active community, they need to meet together frequently and for this generally the community space will be used. If the community space is not there, then in that case personal property will be used. So the community space reflects the social aspect of the poverty prevailed in an area.

Here SPRS reflects the detailed statistics of the community space available and accessible to the households and the same will be documented.

Informal shopping area:

It means the casual shopping place where the citizens can get the daily utensils.

Availability of the informal shopping area reflects the facilities accessible to the people in the living place. If a community has to go to distant place out from the slum, then it is also a burden as they have to invest money and resources. The developed area will have more facilities. So it can reflect poverty. So in this view point, the access statistics can reflect the poverty.

In the panel we focus on the number and the type of the shopping centre available in the area near to the living area under the study.
