The SDG India Index, 2018 offers critical insights into the status of SDG adoption and implementation in India. The Index tracks the progress of all states and union territories (sub-national entities) on a set of 62 priority indicators, measuring their progress on the outcomes of the SDG-related interventions and schemes of the government. The SDG India Index is intended to provide a holistic view on the social, economic, and environmental status of the country and its sub-national entities on their SDG status. The Index aims to support the sub-national entities in benchmarking their progress, highlight data gaps across SDGs, and support the states and union territories in identifying priority areas. The Index would also serve as an advocacy tool and trigger further action at the sub-national level.
