Intellectual Thoughts by Sanjay Panda: Gujarat leads in growth among the Indian states.

Gujarat leads in growth among the Indian states.

Gujarat has leaped ahead of other Indian states in growth, whereas the states in South India are witnessing a slump in growth, according to a report.  Gujarat has witnessed growth at the rate of 11 per cent as compared to the all Indian growth average of nine per cent, states the report by Mckinsey & Co.
In the recent years (2005-10), the real GDP growth in Gujarat has been 11.3 per cent as against 11 per cent in Haryana, 9.6 per cent in Bihar, 8.5 per cent in Karnataka, 8.1 per cent in Kerala and 7.4 per cent each in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

Gujarat has achieved leadership in the chemicals industry, with 35 per cent share of all investments in this sector over the past five years. Industry leaders attribute the slump in the South Indian region to factors such as rising land prices, significant shortage in the availability of skilled  labour, infrastructure bottlenecks including port capacity and growing urban congestion in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad, for the slump.
