Kerala was adjudged the perfect ruled state within the nation whereas Uttar Pradesh ended on the backside within the giant states class, in line with the Public Affairs Index-2020 launched by the Public Affairs Centre right here on Friday.
In its annual report launched on Friday, the city-based not-for-profit organisation, headed by former Indian House Analysis Organisation (ISRO) chairman Ok Kasturirangan, stated the states have been ranked on governance efficiency based mostly on a composite index within the context of sustainable improvement.
4 southern states, Kerala (1.388 PAI Index level), Tamil Nadu (Zero.912), Andhra Pradesh (Zero.531) and Karnataka (Zero.468) stood within the first 4 ranks within the giant state class when it comes to governance, it stated.
Uttar Pradesh, Odisha and Bihar have been on the backside of the rating, scoring detrimental factors within the class. They acquired – 1.461, -1.201 and -1.158 factors respectively.
Within the small state class, Goa ranked first with 1.745 factors, adopted by Meghalaya (Zero.797) and Himachal Pradesh (Zero.725).
The worst performers who scored detrimental factors are Manipur (-Zero.363), Delhi (-Zero.289) and Uttarakhand (-Zero.277), in line with the PAC report.
Chandigarh emerged the perfect ruled union territory within the class of UTs with 1.05 PAI factors, adopted by Puducherry (Zero.52) and Lakshadweep (Zero.003). Dadar and Nagar Haveli (-Zero.69), Andaman, Jammu and Kashmir (-Zero.50) and Nicobar (-Zero.30) have been the least performers.
In keeping with the PAC, the governance efficiency is analysed within the context of sustainable improvement outlined by three pillars of fairness, progress and sustainability.
Talking on the event, Kasturirangan stated: “The proof that PAI 2020 generates and the insights that it supplies should compel us to replicate on the financial and social transition that’s underway in India”. PTI
