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.

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.
