Top Ten States in India

The Top Ten

1 Tamil Nadu

Tamil nadu is not state I would say it's a country because it has everything all kind of resources like education, space, sea, river, mountain, different climate and the best people...

It is the state with numerous developments and infrastructures which help the youngsters to proceed their life greatful, when compared to all other states in India.

Yeah.! Of course. While all other states are suffering from internal problems, Tamilnadu is rapidly racing in development. In spite of all dependencies like water for farming it still holds good for being in No# 1 position.

Most of the water are flowing from Kerala. Either you can say Tamil Nadu is depended on Kerala rivers and kindness of Kerala people. If the statement is not correct, Do any of the Tamil Nadu Government says that we don't want a single droplet of water from Kerala. Na

The State despite having less natural resources compared to other big states, has done immensely better in converting its weaknesses to strengths.

The state also has industrial towns which in their booms provide continuous cash flow throughout the state. Cities and towns like, Chennai, Vellore, Salem, Erode, Tirupur, Coimbatore, Karur, Namakkal, Tiruchy, Sivakasi, Tutukudi are industrial areas and are hubs to various Industries. this diverse industrial footprint throughout the state makes it less vulnerable than the single industry dependent states.

The State is again devoid of perennial rivers. But thanks to incredibly brilliant farmers and their very adoptive style of farming, the state is leading producer of even the irrigation intense crops like Rice, Sugar Cane, Plantains, Coconuts etc.

A Very secular people and very accommodating population also suits people from other regions in India to find Tamil Nadu attractive for Investments.

2 Kerala

Kerala is most urbanized state in India. In all other states developments are only city centered. But here entire Kerala can be considered a big city. There is no much difference in the life style of village people and city people here, because all of the people are highly educated. Kerala is number one in education, health sectors. You can see at least one educational as well as health institutions in each panchayath of Kerala. But in all other states, including Tamil Nadu, the panchayaths are not developed compared to Kerala. Unemployment is the basic problem of Kerala. This is due to lack of industries. Kerala is heavily dense state. So geographically big companies are not suitable of Kerala's environment. But Kerala is growing in IT as well as Tourism sectors. The largest IT park is in Kerala, ie Technopark Trivandrum which caters more than 200 companies. Infopark Kochi is also caters 100s of companies and these two are under expansion. Besides these Thrissur, Alappuzha have the ...more

It's GOD'S OWN COUNTRY and there is no other state in the world as beautiful as Kerala. Kerala police officers are better than Scotland yard but they can't show their power because of the dirty government they have. One big thing is that it is the most educated state in India. Very small with only 3 and a half crore population. But is the best.

Sure, its kerala. Main thing literacy, Well ahead of Tamilnadu still suffering from water and electricity scarcity which are some among the basic needs for human life nowadays. Also Maharashtra, since it lacks anti terrorist activities and quiet peaceful to live. Industries popping up, North indian labourers coming to kerala instead of going to GULF. These are facts, not any myths. Although as every particle in the nature Kerala is not at all perfect in all sense, it have some weakness also. But still its better than other. Last but not the least, Beauty.

Most peaceful state to live for any community. No hatred towards people of other states (That's why people from North flows to Kerala for employment).
Number one in following parameters.
1. Literacy
2. Education (Particularly primary. More higher education institutions have to come. One NIT and an IIM. 6 Govt. Medical colleges and 5 Govt. Medical colleges are in pipeline. 10 engineering colleges. (10 operational + 1 proposed) 11 state universities and 3 universities of central govt).
3. Health care (At least one Primary health center in all villages. Govt hospitals in all minor towns taluk headquarters, district head quarters and general hospital and a regional institute of cancer)
4. Tourism (Numerous destinations ranging from beach, backwaters to water falls and hill stations).
5. Social security (Not know for any major communal clashes. All the major communities are enjoying the social justice)
6. Climate (Warm and pleasant weather through out the year with ...more

3 Maharashtra

Number 1 position : Maharashtra
GDP: $190.310 billion
GDP per capita: $1,568

India's richest state, Maharashtra is the second most urbanised state.

It is the second most populous and third largest state by area in India. It has a high rate of economic growth, and the biggest contribution comes from the services sector.

Maharashtra contributes 15 per cent of national industrial output and over 40 per cent of India's national revenue. Indias o software producing state. Having largest medical, pharma and engineering colleges. Besides mumbai, IT hub pune has silicon valley of india ;nashik, nagpur, aurangabad and baramati are well industrilised cities of maharashtra.

Number 1 position : Maharashtra
GDP: $190.310 billion
GDP per capita: $1,568

Maharashtra is by far the most progressive state. People from other state migrate heavily to Maharashtra due to opportunities available in here including Gujarathis though Gujrat is also became a developed state recently. The local Marathi migrating to other states is very less is the sign that Maharashtra is the most developed state of India.

Earlier chief ministers planned the growth properly. Because of their effort state has been at No1 position for years. It has surplus production of everything till 2000. Because of wrong policies after that, other states started competing. Still Maharashtra is number 1.
All, people are cultured when compared with states in North India. That is the reason people from other states and come and stay here and helps for more growth.

4 Punjab

Punjab is number 1 state in india

Punjab is financially strong or safe place

Technically good, but availability is less,

Its true punjab is number one state of india...

5 Karnataka

Capital of the Southern state of Karnataka, Bangalore today is Asia's fastest growing cosmopolitan city. It is home to some of the most high tech industries in India. The I. T industry views Bangalore as the 'byte-basket' of India. Bangalore is also home to some of India's premier scientific establishments. Blessed with salubrious architectural landmarks, shopping malls and business opportunities, Bangalore is the ideal gateway to India and beyond. Bangalore is home to many well-recognized colleges and research institutions in India and offers a plethora of job opportunities. Numerous public sector heavy industries, software companies, aerospace, telecommunications, and defense organizations are located in the city. It is the hub of jobs and is also known as the Silicon Valley of India because of its position as the nation's leading IT exporter.

I think karnataka deserves to be the best Indian state because whether it s agriculture or industries or education or any other good thing it gives the best compared to any state in India, bangalore is an ideal example for this.

The first thing is people are very good in Karnataka... And Bangalore is number one City in India, and number 1 climate in India and Bangalore has lot of names like silicon City, Green City, planned city. And very good government, the main thing is every states people can easily adjust with climate, food n everything. Bangalore is IT capital of India...
... G R E A T E B A N G A L O R E...

Karnataka (Bangalore) must be top of this list, because it is cosmopolitan city by accepting diversified culture and people, at the same time being degraded by same people who come here for job, whom we accept without any issue since it is in our nature (especially from deep south India), Karnataka always had potential and has given great intense rightful education (college, degree's unlike other state or village), per this topic discussion, hypocrite's must be placed last and state which believes in One India must be placed first and the people, That is Bangalore (Karnataka).

6 Gujarat

Great state in India


Developed in all departments

Gujarat is one of the best states of india.ahmedabad and surat are enlisted in top 55 fastly evolving cities of the world.ankleshwar and junagadh gives one third of total petrol and natural gas to india.anand is called the milk city of india.rajkot has largest silver ornaments market in the world.surat is called the diamond city of india.well today about 32% poverty is still there in india in gujarat it is 9%and sooner it will be 0.00%.

7 Jharkhand

Jharkhand is known as richest mineral maince state in india

Jharkhand should be number 1 state of India

Ever been to Jharkhand for school education? I was born in Jharkhand but parents are from Maharashtra. I completed my education till 2nd standard and then moved to Varanasi where I studied for next 5 years and then to Maharashtra where I completed my 10th and then again moved to Jharkhand for preparing for 11th, 12th and for medical entrance. Among all the 3 states I have studied in I can say frankly that Jharkhand has the best education and Maharashtra has, as per my experience, the worst education among the 3. Even though it the school which ranked 2nd in Maharashtra at that time, still the education level was very poor. In that school, the students learnt English alphabets till 2nd standard which I had already learnt in U.K. G in Jharkhand, even though it was not the top schools in Jharkhand. I agree that Maharashtra has many good colleges but it has a poor primary education level.

Jharkhand is one of the naturally blessed state with the vast scope of development in the future for heavy industries.

8 West Bengal

Forget the CM. Everything other than her is good here

Because what Bengal thinks today, India thinks tomorrow!

West Bengal is one of india's most developed states and it deserves to be in the top 5

Health , Economic sector, Education sector ,ease of doing business with social economy develop...than the most of the south&North India..

9 Uttar Pradesh

If we can remove corruption and put some efforts to control our population then this state could be number one. It is often considered to be one of the most important states with respect to Indian politics with 80 seats to LOK SABHA. It is fourth largest Indian state by economy. But still we can contribute a lot to improve the standard of this state. It's gifted by all natural resources and we should not exploit our resources. Stop polluting rivers.

And we have one of the best educatio facilities like B.H.U. bANARAS, I.I. T KANPUR And all and we the people of U.P. are no more less, we are having on of the best world heritage in Agra the taj mahal so we are no more less in anything

If some effort is made in favor of the state and corruption is rooted out, only then can up prosper. It is already rich in resources and population and even in culture. It has a heritage of over 1000 years old dynasties and so it must be allowed to replenish it's power...

Up is best Indian state, I like this

10 Andhra Pradesh

The most developed state of India, AP has managed to gain high economic growth.

Ap is fastly developing state in india

It was well flooded with all kinds of resources and inland water roots, And nearer to the south east Asia and capable enough to supply the needs of food.

Geographically spread area was big and has civilization and knowledge adopted as per the resources available.

Has good tourism sports to attract fresh phase of people who got bored towards the ARTIFICIAL.

Political, Economical, Commercial, Industrial, Social Environments were stably balanced and growing with roots.

Good dedicated anticipation for individual growth in public.


Andhra is not state I would say it's a country because it has all kind of resources like education, space, sea, river, mountain, different climate and the best people...

Only mountain our country and low education people non technology

The Contenders

11 Haryana

No. 1 State in India. Any doubt see data of Planning Commission.

Haryana will be no. 1 state because it is near delhi and very fertile land. Some cities like gurgaaon will be next london of india..

Haryana is the most developed state in India and most economically developed state in south Asia. It has the largest nos. Of crorpaties in rural areas, and largest manufacturer of two-wheelers, cars, motorcycles etc. More than half of this state consider in Delhi NCR. This is only state in India where 100% electricity provide in all rural areas. It is the number 1 state in health, wealth, sports, education, and hospitality.

I think that it is the most advance state in INDIA

12 Rajasthan

Its beauty, its grandeur its people, its wildlife, everything is better than those of other states. Also its industrial and financial progress remains unmatched. IT IS THE BEST STATE NOT ONLY IN INDIA BUT IN THE WHOLE WORLD

Rajasthan is not crowded in comparison to many other big states. Its population density is just 201. With high solar insulation it is developing its solar power generation potential. It is second in nuclear power generation. All set to become India's energy hub. ATTRACTS TOURIST FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. Peaceful in comparison to other states like Maharashtra, tamil nadu, west bengal, UP, bihar etc.

Yeah Of course Rajasthan is very rich not only in culture but also naturally diversify desert with wetland of Udaipur. Rajasthan has so many numbers of beautiful lakes and dam, you never imagine before watching these all beautiful places. People general perception about Rajasthan is desert state among Indian. But friend god created every place for some purpose there are lots of mineral lies under the deserted state like Zink, Gypsum, Marble, Oil...90 % of total reserve of India lies in Rajasthan.

Humble, honest, hard working with colorful dressed people of Rajasthan with beautiful democracy, law and order, 2nd longest national highway in very good condition, good rail network & location between Delhi - Mumbai Industrial corridor would have advantage to make Rajasthan favourite destination of Investment & fast development of state.

Famous tourist destination, with most beautiful & luxurious hotels and resort makes Rajasthan destination for MICE. (Meetings, Convention, ...more


13 Assam

Assam has a unique culture. A mixture of many tribes and non-tribes. Climatic condition is awesome. Assam is rich and well known for tea, orchids, mushrooms and different herbs used in medical purposes.

Lovely I think 1 is assam

It is green and people are good enough in hospitality, it has the third highest growth rate across India (not by population).. Guwahati is a city which is growing very faster.. In d upcoming days it will be a major trade point in south east Asia.. your day starts with our tea..

Assam is surrounded by almost 5 asian countries which separates assam from other states in India, this is very unique.India's first oil refinery established and started in Assam.In the name of Assam it has a own petrolium brand, that is Assam Oil. Guwahati is not only the capital of Assam, it is also regarded and accepted as the capital of whole north-eastern india.Dhubri and kokrajhar districts are the gate way to NE India.there is an indian defense regiment on the name of Assam which is Assam Rifle.Assam tea is famous in India even in the world and almost 80% exported tea from India to other country is from great Assam. And many more...(Tapash ch.Sarkar, kumarganj, dhubri, assam, mob-09706888809) thanks.

14 Bihar

Just being the least developed state few times back, bihar is now the fastest developing state of India.

Thanks for Nitish kumar CM. Of bihar. I think should open IT company in Bihar.

Soon Bihar's rank will be improved...people must change their views about Bihar.

Bihar is the best state in India

15 Goa

Best culture because in Goa you have freedom to be yourself. If anyone gives you good time you say he or she was great and in my knowledge Goa shows everyone a very good time. But there is lot of things are there to be improved like women security help lines. We need to educate people and we need to have records of the people dealing with tourists for security purpose because I have sceen lot of people with no id card records dealing with tourists in very bad manner

Yes Goa is really very beautifull...

Being a Goan is a pleasure in itself. The people of Goa are as calm as the still water and kind to the core I would say if you're in search of peace than there is no better option than Goa.

The people in goa will never judge you for doing what you want. Goans believe each person is born to different things. The environment is peaceful. People don't care about your race or caste. Women are not discrimated. People are truly helpful. There is an easy going lifestyle. People here love music(there are a lot of concerts). People are open minded. Many people outside goa settle in goa and do not want to leave. You will find all the facilities outside your house and not have to walk miles and miles to get it. There is no ragging or bullying in college. Everyone is considerate.

16 Himachal Pradesh

Himachal is in top 5. Check other sites stats. Dear admin

No communal problems, Riots, terrorism etc. No Insane urbanization, No filth and dirt, one of the best GDP's, Education and facilities well provided plus nature's beauty on its peak.No to forget HYDRO POWER it generates.

Cleanest, most peaceful and greenest state in India. Well connected to the entire nation by air and land.

Himachal is my birth place. Women are safer than any other States in India. People are very innocent. The glaring example is, Himachal Pradesh Police is at no. 1 spot to tackle the criminal activities, the reason for this is there are very less criminal activities. Moreover, there is no road rage problem, people come forward to help the needy or at the time of any unforeseen event. Though, you may get priced highly at some tourist places, but, that is not a problem, everyone wish to earn something good from foreigners but be sure it won't be over costlier than 1 $ or 2 $.

17 Jammu and Kashmir

Jammu is a place of unity where lion and deer drank water on the same river

All politics aside, Kashmir is more suited to Pakistanis and the Indian administered Kashmir should be handed to China as I believe they can handle it better especially as Pak-China relations are good. Makes sense, stop the fight because Kashmir is probably better off being a part of northern Pakistan, I am not a Pakistani but would feel safer going to Jammu Kashmir area if it were entirely Pakistan only. After all pakistan is smaller than India already so whats wrong with them holding onto kashmir and protecting the people?

It's not developed that much but as India is known for its vast variety from north to south, Jammu Kashmir itself is a state with very diverse environment. Jammu relatively hot, shares almost same weather with Punjab, Kashmir is cold except June-July, Leh Ladahk extremely cold. You can find Kashmiri, small eyed (laugh out loud), Dorgi and Punjabi (Sikh) in different locations. It's not a state with a lot of development or projects but it's a state worth visiting.

It is one of beautiful place in world the people of kashmiris'have their own resources like apple, apricot, shawl, Saffron, but here are no industrial fields so it is not developed state in many ways like construction, roads, railways, power, institutions etc

18 Madhya Pradesh

Its rapidly growing in every sector and a safe state to live

Yes I am a indorians & I love to my M.P.

This is best ever growing state in India, it has all the things required, it is the best place to visit, best place to live, best place to work, best in everything, it deserves first place

It's a new born baby looking for the bright future for the golden state

20 Uttarakhand

Best state... Simple and honest people, scenic beauty at best, clean air and water, sparsely populated, best educational institutes.

it should be in top 5 as per its whole culture,beautiful place,low crime

It's a best place to live in but unavailability of earning resources makes itself it at back foot.

How wonderful state uttarakhand is there are two features in it is is having plains and mountains both. Excellent tourism...

It is one of the most develop state of north east India

The edge of India we can call. Here in Manipur has a good transparent business.

I love my motherland (Manipur

Manipur is the best state I think because this place is very disciplined and it is very historical

25 Chhattisgarh

Chhattisgarh provides the country with its rich mineral resources and also generate revenue by exporting these. It has established iron and steel industries. Supplies coal to all the industries in the country. Thanks to availability of coal and also hydroelectricity, Chhattisgarh produces surplus electricity and provides to other states. business is well developed and is going to be one of the most developed states soon.

It is nice state to live...there is no riots between Muslim and Hindu peoples so it is silence state and rice hub and electrical hub of India

Chhattisgarh peoples have seen great development in past 4-5 years.
This state is not in top 10 list but still visitors will not be disappointed for sure. It's developing at mush higher rate and will continue to do so.

Chhattisgarh is the india best popular state..Chhattisgarh is India beautiful and agricultural state...Chhattisgarh is India most important state...
