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

Tamil Nadu is excellent in providing Business opportunities and Job Opportunities and has a good range of Industries and Educational institutions as well. There is a mediocre variety in Culture (city dwellers having a modern lifestyle and the rural areas having a mixed culture-modernized traditional). The tourism is also good. There is problem in basic infrastructure such as Electricity and even water supply in some districts owing to political issues and not because of lack of these physical infrastructure. Production, Service, Media, Transportation, Communication etc. Are provided to the society adequately. But we just can't conclude any state is the because it needs a lot of research to come to a conclusion, some states may be better in one thing and may not excel in another sector...

2 Kerala

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 it's better than other. Last but not the least, Beauty.

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.

The main reason why Kerala stands apart is that it has the highest literacy rate (of both male and female) in India. The people live life as a cooperating society where religion, gender, or social status have failed to create tensions among those in a society. The public have a better say in political issues and education is of supreme importance to all families as it is considered as the key to successful living. Kerala has the highest human development index and the health sector is one of the best in India. People live a happy and peaceful life irrespective of their income. Kerala is a role model state for the rest of India: of course it is the best- GOD'S OWN COUNTRY.

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.

The economy of Maharashtra is driven by international trade, Mass Media (television, motion pictures, video games, recorded music), aerospace, technology, petroleum, fashion, apparel, and tourism. Maharashtra is the most industrialized state and has maintained the leading position in the industrial sector in India. Maharashtra contributes 25% of the country's industrial output and is the most indebted state in the country. Industrial activity in state is concentrated in four districts, The state has a large, multi-modal transportation system with the largest road network in India. Maharashtra cuisine covers a range from mild to very spicy dishes.

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

Best place to live is punjab developing in all phase agriculture, infrastructure, education, entrepreneurship.golden temple is world's most visited religious place located in Amritsar, Punjab

Punjab is obviously the best state in India. Home to the best Indian food and cultural places. The capital of Punjab, Chandigarh is the fastest growing city in India and Asia and it is the cleanest city in South Asia. Go off the Sikh capital of the world, Amritsar you shall find the beautiful Golden Temple. Also, the Wagah Border (Amritsar-Lahore) is the only border in the world with parades and shows. The Amritsar Airport, (Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport) is the fastest growing airport in India and will VERY soon fly to London, Toronto, Istanbul, Melbourne, Paris and many more! Go off to Jalandhar, you will find the beautiful ancient city with the best hospitals and schools and a very distinctive shopping experience. The Punjab government is doing what not to improve the food provider of India. We were once the biggest Empire in India and we have a very unique history. We have given the world the 10 Sikh Gurus, many UNESCO heritage sites and the greatest Asian kings. We ...more

Punab is the land of GURUs. India, s lowest poverty in punjab. Agriculture is the largest industry in Punjab. 8 Other major industries include the manufacturing of scientific instruments, agricultural goods, electrical goods, financial services, machine tools, textiles, sewing machines, sports goods, starch, tourism, fertilisers, bicycles, garments, and the processing of pine oil and sugar. Punjab also has the largest number of steel rolling mill plants in India, which are located in Steel Town Mandi Gobindgarh in the Fatehgarh Sahib district.

Looking it’s history and cultural differences Punjab was very stron nation where Indus civilization grew and Punjab was the Punjab Had the best army in Asia, even these days Punjab regiment and Sikh Regiment is the Bravest and most decorated units in Indian Army and have won every battle.
Even Alexander the Great was stoped by Punjabi worrier Porus,
This night can tell you who important, strong and brave Punjab was and Punjab is, even though the Indian government always neglect it,

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.

Definitely I can say its KARNATAKA, Because I see people all over India come down to Bangalore to work also many of them get settled down here. I see people (Karnataka People) around me learning quickly different langues other than Kannada. Karnataka always opened their arms for different state of people encouraged them by learning their langues and making them more comfortable. Also it's a IT Hub, Best nature, Best Climate, Best Resources in every aspect.
Its One and Only Karnataka no doubts.

Karnataka should be the #1 state, because it welcomes everyone, it is rich in diversity in terms of people, culture and flora fauna (has the highest number tigers and elephants in the nation), is peaceful, good climate in most parts. It has good beaches to good hill stations to forests and great cities, people are good as well. Jai karnataka, Jai Bharatha. The state teacher how to stay United and maintain brotherhoos inspite of differences, how kannadigas, tuluvas and kodavas stay in harmony in state. In other states where even more Languaged are spoken (like Maharashtra and Andhra) they are over shadowed by the official Language and fading but not so in the case of karnataka.

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

Economically, culturally, socially and politically the most advance, Gujarat promises whatever the seeker wishes for. Industrially a master destination, Gujarat and its people have proved their matter. But perhaps the value system of this half-country half-state is what makes it stand out among the crowd. While talking about Gujarat, people like to compare it with Maharashtra. The above said words stand true in this comparison as well. The longest coastline, only and largest salt desert in the world, the only home of the asiatic lion, home to the Aryans, motherland of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel and the mother of the White Revolution in India. Gujarat is gold in the true sense.

First of all it gives a role model of development to all other states of India. Life in Gujarat is colorful, meaningful and joyful. People of Gujarat are well-known for their Hospitality, The way they live their lives and Mostly emotionally well beings. Life is like a Celebration here, because the grand celebration of festivals. Never Miss the Navaratri, Utrayan (Kite Flying Day) festivals of Gujarat.

Love It.

The people are very friendly and helpful. And not to miss on food aspect. You will not find so many varieties and dishes in any other state except Gujarat. The development is commendable. It is also the most peaceful state in India. Business flourishes in Gujarat, of course the Gujjus are best known for that reason only. "Kuch din to gujaariye Gujarat mein", you won't like any other state once you stay in Gujarat

Gujarat is most prosperous state in India. Its also called a growth engine of India. If you consider it is an seprate nation it have everything it is almost like unites kingdom in land area and in population. It have good governance, industrialization, great minds, longest sea coastline of 1600km, Industrialization in all sector, good infrastructure like malls, highways, big cities etc.

7 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.

I am a IIT student in IIT kharagpur. As my father lived in Bokaro steel city as he works as senior section engineer in Indian Railway, we lived there. My house is in West Bengal
. I think that Jharkhand should be in number 1 in educational state.

Though unexplored by most population of India, Jharkhand is the best state for education and peaceful life. It is industrially grown and is capable to strive independently.

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

8 West Bengal

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

In historically India had gained world dominant power from the Eastern part of India (ref. to Maurya empire, Gupta empire based on Magadh and Patliputra) which is the place of India's major food and rich human resource products and modern culture. Next coming decades in India's economic activity will be in Eastern India because this region needs to develop and Bihar and Bengal will share this responsibility to take India into world power. As only Kolkata is the Eastern India's main centre for everything so Coming decades for only East India specially Bengal based on Kolkata.. Once India's capital will be next India's power hub by the help of East India's finest peoples.
Bengal deserves it because of Bengali people who can think about India and sacrifice for India.

One might often hear people saying that Bengalis brag a lot about their state and culture. In fact, they actually do. But that's because they have every reason to be proud of their place. I, myself, stay in Delhi. but my annual one month visit to Kolkata gives me more than enough reasons to fall in love with that place..not just as a tourist but also as a habitant(even though, for a month).
Talk about food, it's damn cheap, awesome and on par with some of the best cuisine centres in India.
Talk about development, Bengal has many good cities to stay, all them having every comfort and requirement at hand's reach.
Kolkata is a one of it's kind metropolitan city with modern facilities and structures infused into the old English charm of the City of Joy.
The people and environment are truly and deeply appealing to anyone who comes there. Let's not forget that Kolkata is a home to many Chinese, Anglo-Indians, Marwadis and Gujaratis who have been living there for generations with ...more

Bengal as produced by far the most number of Award winning or Famous literates, artists, musicians, dancers; basically excellence in any form of the arts.
Education is given far more priority than a lot of other states.
Sports, again it excels in, be in football or cricket.
The extreme poverty aside, it's a pretty developed state.

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.

I think Uttar Pradesh is a only state in India which is having everything. So there is no need to specify what U. P is having. It is having those thing which other state are trying to get. Also U. P is a state which gave lot of thing to country like first and maximum number of prim ministers not only this every essential thing and remarkable given by U.P. even the name of India (Bharata) on the name of Bharat born in Ayodha (U. P). Just major problem is with its government. If this problem get resolve then it'll the first in country.

Uttar Pradesh is the birth place of Hinduism.
Uttar Pradesh is the birth place of Lord Ram & Krishna.
Uttar Pradesh is the birth place of Lord Parashuram.

Uttar Pradesh is the place where Lord Gautam Buddha spends his last moment on the earth and died.
Uttar Pradesh is the birth place of Jain tirthankar Bhagvaan Mahaveer.

Uttar Pradesh has lasrgest agricultural lands of India.
Uttar Pradesh has 2nd highest GDP in India.
Uttar Pradesh welcomes 42% foreign visitors in India every year.
Uttar Pradesh has blessings of holy rivers like Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati.

If Uttar Pradesh is a nation than it is world's 6th most populous nation.
Uttar Pradesh gave 8 Prime Ministers to Indian Democracy out of 13.
Uttar Pradesh was the land of first freedom struggle of India.
Uttar Pradesh gave maximum freedom fighters in freedom struggles.
Uttar Pradesh sends maximum soldiers in Indian Army.
Uttar Pradesh is most powerful state of India.

With such a huge population which will the 5th largest country if it is free country I think we are doing great! With such a huge labor force and agricultural land and diverse culture U.P has provided its huge contribution in freedom fight and most number of prime minister's to the country.. And also no doubt about its large cities in industries like Noida and Kanpur etc.. And Kashi being the oldest living city in the world.
No doubt without U.P India wont be complete

10 Andhra Pradesh

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.

" CAN BE THE ( 1 ) IT HAS THAT POTENTIALITY."

Newly formed state Andhrapradesh has highest potential to grow number 1 in India and one of the top 10 in world very soon by 2030. This will come true due to its geographical location with large sea coast, civilised population, naturally fertile land and ample of water resources. It's on its way to build a world class capital city Amaravathi. It has Vishakhapatnam city which has notable GDP growth over 10%. It has highest possibility to stand as India's best tourism destination gifted with Natures beauty in Diviseema, konaseema, Beach side, inner Forest resorts and popular pilgrim centre like Tirupathi. Peoples broad minded thinking ability and visionary leadership are added advantages.

Andhra pradesh is a very nice developed state and I will always wanted the andhra pradesh as the number 1 state in India to be developed economically technically, politically, socially. Also golden temple and some famous shrines are there in andhra pradesh. Sea port is also there in andhra pradesh. And I think that vishakhapatanam must be the capital of the new andhra pradesh.

I am from Telangana. It was unfortunate that the state had be divided with Telangana now being ruled by KCR and Andhra Pradesh by Chandra Babu Naidu. I would say that Chandra Babu Naidu has he ability to take Andhra Pradesh to a level where it can be compared with European countries in terms of standard of living, development, greenery, government schemes, industries, infrastructure and many more. Telangana, on the other hand, will also see growth but will lag far behind AP. CBN can take AP to skies from the dust he is given by Congress.

The Contenders

11 Haryana

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.

Haryana is only the state of India where laregst nos. of crorepati lives in rural ares. this is the most economically developed state in south Asia. This state is no. 1 in all sectors sports where no example will need to explain, education, health, per capita income, hospitality, agriculture, roads, infrastructure development etc. It is the largest manufacturer of two-wheelers (World's largest Hero moto co. ), cars, and tractors. This is only the state where every one can easily survive.

The best place 2 live besides (crime). It is 1 of d most prosperous states of of India and large contributor 2 Indian upliftment in the past few decades. It has recorded 1 of d fastest economic growths. It is full of large corporates and in rural areas, agriculture has provided many millionaires. A highly developed state with the most developed health, hospitality and employment facilities..

Every one in Haryana is working hard and earning in its own way like farming, Teaching, Govt job, Private job, shopkeeping and all.. So haryana is going to shine brighter and brighter.. Good people with good heart.. Only one thing is wrong that is too much effect of casteism.

12 Rajasthan

The land of the ROYALS, the land of elegantly hueded cultures and home to the coloured cities of India
Pink city Jaipur
Blue city. Jodhpur
Golden City Jaisalmer
And others including Udaipur...
The mouth watering food from it's cuisine...
The hospitable people...
And the never-to-forget architectures, the historical forts which are definitely going to make one spell bounded including the Kumbhalgarh fort and the SPOOKY bhangarh fort...
The Royal Rajasthan!
A must place to visit

It's a gem of India, Abundance of resources and now hidden potential of Rajasthan is recognized which will lead it to good and stable phase of development. Its majestic in terms of tourism, Handicrafts, Solar and wind energy plus people here are so much peaceful compared to other states and crime rate is also minimal...Rajasthan is also the largest state with comparatively lower population density and most of Rich of India, they might left Rajasthan due to under development in past but today Rajasthanis and marwaris are contributing to India's economy at top. God bless this state

One of the most beautiful states in India. Rajasthan is the best state in the category of developing renewable energy, tourism and culture.

Rajasthanis are also very tolerant, peaceful, friendly, and they are proud of their cultural heritage, unlike other Indian who spend their time to always speaking English and imitate Westerners.

Racism is an inexistant phenomenon in Rajasthan, unlike the rest of India and particularly Delhi and Punjab.

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.

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.

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 one of the most progressive states in the country. Assam is known for Assam tea and Assam silk. The first oil well in Asia was drilled here. Assam is the home ground to Majuli, which is recognised by Guinness Book of World Records as World's Largest River Island. The state has its own state anthem, "O, Mur Apunar Dex", which was composed by Lakshminath Bezbaroa (The pioneer of modern Assamese literature). The state is famous for one-horned Indian rhinoceros which it conserved from near extinction, along with tigers and various species of Asiatic birds. The economy of Assam is aided by wildlife tourism, centred around Kaziranga National Park and Manas National Park which are World Heritage Sites. Sal tree forests are found in the state. Assam receives more rainfall compared to most parts of India. This rain feeds the Brahmaputra River, whose tributaries and oxbow lakes provide the region with a hydro-geomorphic and aesthetic environment. It has a unique culture, a mixture of ...more

Lovely I think 1 is assam

14 Bihar

Bihar should be no 1 and maharastra last . We are proud as bihari. B=Bharat
I=India
H=hindustan
A=Karyakarta
R=Rudra
Only bihar has such beautiful names hidden in its name.

Whenever I required any help there r always biharies who came to help me... I know they r bit unhygienic but they have the best heart... I don't want to say much but the people who r judging bihar first look up at your state... And people don't just look at the politics & development of the state... U all can't count the things which bihar have given u.. Many don't know many of the things about bihar... So all who hate bihar first tell us the the things this state have given u & then come here to talk to me...

We hopes that bihar will become number one very soon just to improve the water system for irrigation and the law and order. Otherwise bihar have different cultures world ranking university, The place of Buddha and our loyal Chief Minister Mr. Nitish Kumar who have devoted himself for biahr.

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

15 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.

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

Goa is a great place to visit as there are many tourists and you have the freedom to relax yourself in the sea shore, if anyone likes beaches then the most recommended is Goa. Goa is amazingly beautiful. But if you are very fond of scenic places then you better come to Munnar in Kerala, because of the killer views, mountains and beautiful hotels.

It sure is a fun place but the safety, employment and development is a concern as it solely depends on tourism and hospitality sector to generate revenue apart from manufacturing industries. The state can offer plenty more services in other sector which the govt must take initiative to improve quality of life.

16 Himachal Pradesh

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 $.

Himachal is one of the states where female education are encouraged and people themselves maintained the growth of population, GDP is high no terrorism, peaceful environment but unfortunately people use alcohol,tobacco and cigarette Bidi at large.if people reduce this Himachal would be number 1 no doubts

Himachal is leading in education, the literacy rate is one of the highest. The wealth is uniformly distributed among people. It has one of the highest per capita income and moreover it is corruption free and a green state.

Voting doesn't matter..it's a fact that heaven HP is the best place in India...most peaceful, decent litracy rate, low brain drain percentage, happy people, natural beauty. peace of mind, no communal riots, electricity cheaper, decent road connectivity which is even geting better day by day. I can go on and on writing more and more about himachal...

17 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.

Compared to the other states, Jammu and Kashmir has the least percentage of people living under poverty line, even less than Gujarat and Maharashtra. People are mostly well educated and students are very competitive. The population is under control and no overcrowding of people is there. Most importantly Kashmir has the best weather and is the most beautiful place in India.

Hello Guys! I am kashmiri citizen and my thinking about my mother land is that kashmir is beautiful
and most beautiful and regarding of industrial development it is very less because of the atrocities by Indian govt.

Indians deliberately keep kashmir and kashmiri people at back of infrastructure and other developments
because they are well known that to spend money on kashmir will become all in vain
because insha allah soon we will get freedom and become peace full nation

Thanks.

19 Telangana

The best destination in India for business investments. As it is a non seismic zone it is even safer for setting up data centers. The government of Telangana state had brought a new Industrial and IT policy which is the best of it's kind in the whole world. That makes the Industrialists or investors who want to start their business with very ease of applying. Just apply online and relax all your approvals will be done by the related departments and final approval will be handed over to you.

It is one of the biggest IT hub city ever seen in India. Not only in means of IT but in the standards of livings Hyderabad was ranked as the second best dynamic city in the whole world.In whole India it is ranked 9th for lowest crime rates, and ranked 1st in pharmaceutical industry.not only this but government of telangana had introduced many future plans which are not only said but are coloured also and Hyderabad had bagged number 1 state along with Bangalore for best state in India. Hyderabad had been ranked 1 from last five years for best city to live.

The fastest developing richest state in ratio to population in india. The only state in india that gives 24� - 7 power supply for civil and most importantly for AGRICULTURE and it's capital Hyderabad is the fastest growing cosmopolitan city. It is the silicon valley of india,many industries with abundant resources like water, electricity,and most importantly talented skillful labour which makes it least among unemployment...It's also a multi lingual state where language won't be a trouble for any of other indians...

Haha our state is world's best and safe to live.. Who cares if it is in 15th rank, we are andhras too.. Caz we are Telugu.. Jai Telangana Jai Telugu..

Miss America Nina Devuliri is a Telugu,
Satya Nadella CEO of Microsoft a Telugu man,
Many doctors and Engineers from IIT to MD's, are Telugu people.. From Before christ(because) to now.. Our history and our wealth, culture nobody has it.
Only Andhra and Telangana has largest Thorium reserves in the world.. Etc etc etc

We have much history, we Mined diamonds first in this world, Kohinoor diamond belongs to Telugu people..
We are not actually south Indians but more like Deccan region..

20 Uttarakhand

Uttarakhand is an exquisite blend of simplicity and divination. It is the state of beautiful hill stations like nainital, ranikhet and mussoorie. The people in this state honour their culture and are very honest. At the same time the state has shown great development in the field of education and technology. The state is well known for it's natural beauty which includes snow clad himalayas and meandering ganga. It is not only the most appropriate state for tourism but also a wonderful state to live in. It is free of pollution and high crime rate. Moreover the cultural history and academic advancement are worth calling it the top state of india.

Uttarakhand is one of the best states in India, why, the people of Uttarakhand (Hills) are very simple, most honest, highly educated and very high in moral values, and perhaps the religious atmosphere around and in their homes makes them so. Uttarakhand (Hill region) has near zero crime, near zero rape cases, near zero divorce cases. So, no matter from whichsoever part of India you may belong..when you enter the hills of Uttarakhand you will feel it as your home, you will find people welcoming, naive, cultured and helping. So one can roam around with more freedom than any other places in India.

It is a wonderful place with so many world heritage sites, national park and many wildlife sanctuary. Awesome culture and the tradition. Hard working people. Uttarakhand give more than half of it's population is in army.

You got to be kidding me. ! Uttarakhnd should be in the top 5... Its literacy rate is way above than other Indian states... Beautiful state.. Crime rate is very low... Everything is close to perfect

23 Odisha

Odisha has probably the richest literature in the country. Its literary history is adorned with uncountable poems (which are epics in themselves), novels, essays, short stories and innumerable other literary works. Its scenic beauty is the reverie of any litterateur. Most importantly, its people are as affable as people can be, they are never hostile towards outer state people or language, and welcome them with open arms.

Now odisha is growing and developing so faster than any other states of india.
Bhubaneswar was considered as smart city of india.
Odisha is the only state where most of indias mineral resource occure.
Odisha now going in the path of tremendous growth.
As of now bhubaneswar was developed by smart city scheme.
In india odisha attract most tourist in the month of rath yatra.now many sectors of odisha became developed and many are developing.
This was the story of odisha in present days.

North and south Indian foods. Beatifl places to enjoy n has some of the most beautiful beaches in India... Incredible Odisha

24 Manipur

Manipur should be in the top 4. The following points tells us why:

1. India, till date, has a few internal airports and Manipur is one of the few.
2. not many 5 star hotels are known to exist in India, and again, Manipur boast in this category of owning grand 5 star hotel, in India.
3. considering the flora and fauna of a region, Manipur not only has 'one of it's kind' species, but also a wide range of fresh water lakes, valleys, of which the sangai deer and siroi lily are few of the multitude.

All the above facts run parallel with the term 'the Jewel of India' as coined by the britishers.

An internal airport is not necessarily a good point, international airports increase tourism and give internal connections.

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

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

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

25 Chhattisgarh

If state's businessmen,entrepreneurs seek markets beyond Indian territory. They would definitely be in the first page. The state has a geographical advantage, being on "Safer side of the country", never reported floods, major earthquakes, droughts etc. rather always had abundance in electricity, water, natural resources, agriculture. All government has to focus is on creating Special Industrial / Economic Zone, Export houses, Promote Subsidy for sustainable Manufacturing units - more focused towards agri-sector, and in concurrent develop skilled manpower to promote internal job creation and to stop brain drain to metro cities and other popular states. I think launch and plans of AIIMS, IIM, IIT IIIT institues in state is a major attempt to stop the later, concrete steps needs to be taken around the former, which constitutes majority of the population in the state.

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.

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...
