Mizoram

Mizoram is perhaps the most isolated of any of India’s states, surrounded as it is by Bangladesh in the west and Myanmar in the east. The cultural, religious, and linguistic distinctiveness of the native Mizo people have made the state slow to integrate with India as a whole. Suspicion of outsiders and special treatment from the central government has made the state reluctant to adopt market-based approaches to development.  Should non-agriculture related industries take root, they will be supported by a population that ranks 2nd highest on literacy in the country.

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.
