Top 5 fastest growing states by GSDP.

After witnessing unprecedented challenges due to the covid-19 pandemic, India’s states are well on their way to recovery, according to the Reserve Bank of India’s Handbook of Statistics on Indian States released last week. Almost every state economy has already surpassed its pre-pandemic size and state finances are looking up even as concerns over elevated fiscal deficit remain. Rural wage growth, however, has failed to keep pace with average retail inflation, which may become a cause of decline in spending. 

Gujarat is the fastest-growing state for the last nine years (from FY12 to FY21), according to the latest data released by RBI. Gujarat’s Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) at the constant price has increased at compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2 per cent.

Karnataka is the second fastest-growing major state economy, with a CAGR of 7.3 per cent. At the third spot is Haryana. With a CAGR of 6.7 per cent, Madhya Pradesh is ranked fourth in the list of fastest-growing states. Madhya Pradesh is followed by Andhra Pradesh which has registered an annual GSDP growth rate of 6.5 per cent.
