Results: EFA resulted into three factors comprising of 13 items. Further, CFA was carried out to confirm the structure obtained during EFA and the model fit summary showed all indices in highly acceptable ranges after the deletion of one more item (CFI=.952, GFI=.945, IFI= .953, TLI=.938) with significance p value (.001). EFA, with restriction of single factor resulted into 13 items with significance p value .000 and model fit summary of CFA confirmed the structure after deletion of two more item (CFI=.923, GFI=.930, IFI= .924, TLI=.901).
