About the state of the state conclave 2016

In 2003, India Today undertook a study to track the performance of the Indian states analyzing which states made the most of liberalization and which fell away.

The states were evaluated on various parameters based on the business environment and the quality of life of the states
It marked the beginning of an annual event "State of the States".
Based on the India Today rankings, Chief Ministers, as representatives of the Best Ranked States, are felicitated at the event
