Richest State in India : List of Richest State in India

India is the country of the population, Peoples practicing different religions and speaking more than 22 languages. We simply denote on us, that is we are unity in diversity. India is separated into 29 states and 7 union territories. India’s growth depends upon the growth of the individual state in the republic.

Growth is commonly denoted by GDP (Gross Domestic Product). There is a big debate is occurring on this GDP system but still, now this one is accepted by the world countries. GDP is measured on yearly basis and it is the final result of goods and service produced in that particular year. But the problem in the GDP is it does not include the cost of living of the people and the individual earnings.

GDP in India:

GDP may be effective for a capitalist country like USA or UK but India is a large democratic developing nation. What to do still we have only the GDP system. India’s GDP was raised 8.1% in 2015 but after that, there was a big drop of 7.1% in 2016. Finance minister Mr. Arun Jetli said it would raise but the next year, it went to 6.9% due to the act of central government’s Demonetization. From that drop India recovering step by step, now for the year 2018 GDP raised to 7.3%. This increment and decrement will be made due to the growth and the stagnation of every individual state.

There are 10 important states which decide the progression of India’s GDP. Let us leave this topic for a while. When an individual citizen of the country or a state have their daily food without doubt or when the earnings of an individual citizen satisfy their family then only the country is said to be the richest country.
Without improving the poor’s life, no country will become rich. The minimum wage of a worker in India is 30 rupees but the politicians only concentrate on building statues. Oops, I sounded more communism. Sorry, let me get back to the GDP.

Without the development of an individual, no country is said to be a developed country.

The development of rich people is not a development. Agriculture and self-dependent democracy will help to achieve the goal. Some countries like Sweden and Norway, the population is less so that countries will not have any problems and they even provide a certain amount of money to every citizen but that will not possible in India because of the population.
