Top Ten States in India


The Top Ten

1 Tamil Nadu

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

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.

Gods own country

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

Number 1 position : Maharashtra

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.

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...

9 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.

How is Goa not in Top 3?

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 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...

It’s a beautiful state.
The most fertile soil.
Awadh ( Uttar Pradesh after Mughal break up) was the most important state.
Lucknow the city of Adab (Urdu word)
Vote for this state but all state are equally good or let’s say great please let’s not say bad about other states or this state

14 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.

16 Jammu and Kashmir

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

Jammu and Kashmir should be the independent country aling with the Askai state and Gilgit Baltistan and Swat and Chitral then it would be the be the best country in the world

18 Telangana

It's a greatest state which has all the resources and IT hub
In future its going to be fastest developing state

Great culture. Rich contribution to Telugu and Urdu literature, India's economic growth. Newly formed, yet fast developing.

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

Telengana is the best state in India, Hyderbad is a modern city. The present CM of Telengana is making his best efforts to improve the conditions of rural areas.
The future of the state looks secure. Real estate is much affordable than other over rated states of India. Moving towards 100% power supply demand, Telengana the youngest state in India will surely be a state which will soon compete with Kerla and Maharashtra.

19 Jharkhand

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 should be number 1 state of India

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

I think Mizoram should be at the first because people are well educated. There is no terrorist inside the state. There is always a clean and fair election which is also a sign that it is a peaceful state. It is the only state which have border with Burma and Bangladesh, so the flora and fauna found in the state cannot be found else where in India.

Beautiful Rainforests and beautiful cities and villages coexisting in harmony, beautiful mizo culture and tradition peacefully coexisting with modern western culture, one of the most literate states in India, fresh air and sweet water, beautiful weather and most of all the vision of beautiful churches on the hills as you turn every 30 degrees or so! And of course the contribution of both Gospel and secular music by this state is commendable!
