In this paper we present the Hindi adaptation of Proactive Coping Inventory (PCI). All the 55 items were translated into Hindi by independent translators. A consensus version (moderation) of these translations was developed looking at the language and cultural suitability of the words. Thereafter, backward translations of the moderated version were performed to check semantic discrepancies. After measuring item equivalence, we stan-dardized the Hindi version of PCI on a representative sample of senior citizens. Contrary to the proposition of the original scale, a fourteen factor solution emerged out of the factor analysis. The factor structure and reliability coeffcients were compared between the original PCI and the Hindi version of PCI.

Key words:

Proactive Coping Inventory, factor analysis.
