Madhya Pradesh

Madhya Pradesh, India’s second largest state by area, is seeking to build a reputation as one of the country’s most dynamic states despite the steep challenges presented by a poor, largely agrarian and rural population. Fifteen years of stable government has allowed the continuous build out of infrastructure improving transportation and electricity connectivity to remote corners in the state.  As the largest producer of agricultural products in the country, the state seeks to add value to this sector by building out agri-business and food processing industries.  Major urban centers in the state are also home to pharmaceutical, information technology, automobile, defense, and textile industries.

Energy

India faces a complex energy challenge: it needs cheap and abundant energy to power high economic growth and lift its citizens into the middle class. But it also hopes to keep its commitments to the U.N. Climate Change Convention and achieve energy independence. India’s states have the resources to generate the energy India needs, but they take different approaches to fostering the growth of the industry. This section allows you to explore energy news from India’s states and offers the Wadhwani Chair’s analysis of India’s energy sector.

While India’s healthcare system is expansive in terms of the number of beneficiaries covered, inequalities in access to high-quality yet affordable care continue to plague delivery systems and push citizens towards the more unregulated private sector. Similarly, while India’s National Health Policy of 2017 promises to reform this system, the responsibility to institute those reforms falls to the states who each have their own unique challenges and opportunities to meet the healthcare needs of their people. This section allows you to explore emerging healthcare policies and news covering new initiatives from India’s states and offers the Wadhwani Chair’s analysis of India’s healthcare sector.
