India Ranked 131st In Human Development Index; Slips By Two Spots

Slipping by two spots, India has secured 131st rank in the 2020 Human Development Index released by the United Nations Development Programme. The report placed India in 'medium human development' category with 0.645 score. However, it noted that while India’s solar capacity increased, the hunger among indigenous children has shot up with girls being the major sufferers. The report was topped by Norway, followed by Ireland and Switzerland.
