For numerous years, economic indicators such as the gross national product and customer price index have been the improves the quality of life in social, economic, environment, health, political, education and infrastructural sense. It was also generally said that if a big industrial complex is recognized anywhere, it will lead to a marked change in the nearby area in terms of general changes in development and implement in employment opportunities, income generation and consequently in the quality of life of people. But unluckily small towns have not attracted industries or people and have not served as counter magnets to the growth of big cities; as such there is decline in the quality of life of dwellers of big cities due to this very reason. Also, the current patterns of the urban development are based on the ideas imported from western countries and they use systems that are highly capital and natural resources intensives. Capital intensity divided the urban population in to urban rich and urban poor while the resource intensity destroys the rural hinterland. The end result is that while there is an effluent class with a very high quality of life, the majority of urban dwellers face a very poor environment quality. The urban population in India has increased significantly from 62 million in 1951 to 285 million in 2001 and is estimated to grow to around 540 million by the year 2021.it would be touching 37% of the total population next 15 years. India's urban population has growth rate nearly 41% in last decade. This directly affects the quality of urban life. In this study, an attempt has been made to find factors affecting QOL Index from the various study. Citation: Dhruv Gandhi, Jagruti Shah, Amit Shah.
