GUWAHATI: Assam has achieved the third highest rate of progress in Human Development Index (HDI) among all major states in India, according to a Planning Commission report. Assam registered 32 per cent progress in HDI for 1999- 2000 and 2007-08 and if it maintains the current rate of progress for another decade it was likely that its overall human development would be ahead of other states, the India Human Development Report, 2011 said.

HDI reflects three main components of development — education, health and per capita income. The report said Assam has shown the highest rate of progress in income index and third highest rate of progress in health index, but is lagging behind the national average in the education index. (PTI)
