This chapter presents findings of the application of the TGI toolkit on a set of five urban mobility-related policies—the Delhi Transit Oriented Development (TOD) policy, Chennai’s non-motorized transport policy, parking policy of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and Maha Mysuru Mahanagara Corporation and the road safety policy of Tamil Nadu—assessed from the lens of the TGI toolkit for the policymaking function. As prescribed by the TGI toolkit, these indicators assess the processes and approaches adopted in formulating the policy and not the merits/demerits of the policies themselves. Overall, we found that all the selected states/cities, except Delhi, rated medium to low on most indicators. The TOD policy in Delhi received a high score on almost all aspects of quality. We find that the capacity-related indicators scored the highest and transparency and public participation indicators scored the lowest across all cities.
