The aim of present study is to examine the factor structure, construct validity and reliability of Emotional Intelligence Scale developed by Bhattacharya that consists of 40 items. The study concerned 100 managers and 300 non managers from 10 companies who are working in Indian Automobile Sector. The respondents were asked to respond a five point Likert scale that from never true to always true. The collected data was analyzed with help of SPSS 18.0 and Moment of Structure version 18 (AMOS) software packages. An exploratory factor analysis was conducted to find out the number of latent variables that was needed to explain the correlations among a set of observed variables after that a first order confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) applied. Emotional Intelligence Scale constructs revealed a satisfactory level of internal consistency A good model fit was found for the measurement model (First order CFA model) using several fit indices like chi square/degree of freedom (CMIN/DF), comparative-fit index (CFI), Tucker Lewis index (TLI) and root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA) showed that all fit indices criteria were fulfilled or model is good fit. The indices of convergent validity, discriminant validity and reliability like CR, AVE, MSV, ASV and Cronbach’s Alpha also showed the good acceptable value of all the construct of measurement model of Emotional Intelligence Scale.
