WISE, which stands for Ward Infrastructure Services and Environment (WISE), is a method of grading different areas of the city on the basis of about 26 indicators that include population, area, slum population, status of infrastructure and services related to solid waste management, street lights, roads, sanitation, drainage, and public amenities.

This information may be used to allocate public funds more judiciously. A ward which has larger area or slum population and is deficient in infrastructure and services may be allocated higher budgets so that the deficiencies can be overcome.

The WISE information can also be used by citizens in the Participatory Budgeting process. Citizens can come to know the status of infrastructure and services in their ward as well as the budget allocations made. This information will be helpful to citizens to identify meaningful projects. Citizens can also undertake social audit of the projects in their neighbourhoods..
