Tamil Nadu’s high rank was an outcome of its impressive scores in the Health Improvement, Digital Reach, Educational Attainment, and Investment Attractiveness pillars.
Tamil Nadu succeeded in retaining its position for the second year in a row. The 2018 index is the second edition of Frost & Sullivan’s GIL Index for Economic Development in India. This year, Maharashtra secured the top rank, while Gujarat, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh, along with Tamil Nadu, were named the top 5 states in terms of overall economic development. Thiru.
