New Delhi: Nov 05, 2010
Twenty years after the first Human Development Report said that “the link between economic progress and human development is not automatic”, India is one of the world’s top-10 performers in terms of income growth over the last 40 years, but is far outperformed by much poorer countries in terms of health and education. The measurement of the HDI itself has been slightly altered and India now ranks 119th of 169 countries measured on the index, with China at 89, South Africa at 110, Pakistan at 125 and Bangladesh at 129. India is classified as a “medium human development” country.
