Abstract: “Intuitionistic Fuzzy Set” (IFS) is used to manage nebulousness and indecision. In current investigation, another intuitionistic fuzzy TOPSIS method is proposed for decision making by utilizing entropy weight. Current model permits estimating the degree of membership and non-membership of various alternatives assessed over a criterion set. A case study has been carried out to diagnosis of vector borne disease. Criteria’s have been selected according to relevant disease and weight has been assigned to them by medical expert’s committee. It has been established that TOPSIS method can diagnose the VBD diseases using specific symptoms as criteria and VBDs as alternatives. The suggested methodology can help in correct and timely diagnosis of VBDs and provides doctors an innovative diagnostic tool (WHO, 2004; WHO, 2014). The result is validated by applying fuzzy VIKOR method.
