What lessons can you draw about the importance of income from the fact that Himachal Pradesh with lower per capita income has a better human development ranking than Punjab?
As a development goal, people would like to have better income as well as other things too. They wish to have a secured future for their children and better education as well as a safe environment. Income and per capita income of the nation are not the true and only indicators of development. It is necessary to have the development of humans too which plays a vital role in development. It is necessary for the government to undertake adequate steps to provide a secure future with sound education and good healthcare facilities in addition to better per capita income. When a small state like Himachal Pradesh could attain better human development with better education even with lower per capita income and low accessibility of resources, then the whole country could do much better.
