Karnataka is the most innovative major state in India. Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Telangana, Haryana, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Gujarat, and Andhra Pradesh form the remaining top ten major states respectively.

The top ten major states are majorly concentrated in southern and western India. Sikkim and Delhi take the top spots among the north- eastern & hill states, and union territories/city states/small states respectively.

Delhi, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Uttar Pradesh are the most efficient states in translating inputs into output.

Renu Swarup, Secretary, Department of Biotechnology said, “cluster-based innovation should be leveraged upon as the focal point of competitiveness.”

Ashutosh Sharma, Secretary, Department of Science said, “The index is a great beginning to improve the environment of innovation in the country as it focuses on both the input and output components of the idea.”

Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, Secretary, AYUSH said, “The index is a good effort to benchmark the performance of the state with each other and promote competitive federalism.”

The study examines the innovation ecosystem of Indian states and union territories. The aim is to create a holistic tool which can be used by policymakers across the country to identify the challenges to be addressed and strengths to build on when designing the economic growth policies for their regions.
