Correct Answer - Option 3 : 130

The Correct Answer is 130.

  • India has been ranked 130th out of 188 countries in the 2015 Human Development Index (HDI), according to the Human Development Report 2015.
  • The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) published the report (UNDP). The HDI is a UNDP-measured average of a country's specific human development achievements.
  • In 2015, India was ranked 130th in the medium human development category, with a score of 0.609. In the 2014 report, the country was ranked 135th with a 0.586 ranking.
  • India was categorized as having a medium level of human growth. The country's HDI ranking remained strong, but it rose five places to 130th in the latest UNDP report due to increases in life expectancy and per capita income.
  • Norway (1st), Australia (2nd), and Switzerland (3rd) are the top three countries in the 2015 HDI (3rd).

  • The Human Development Report (HDR) is an annual report issued by the United Nations Development Programme's Human Development Report Office (UNDP).
  • In 1990, Pakistani economist Mahbub ul Haq and Indian Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen launched the first HDR.
  • Since then, annual reports have been issued on a variety of topics using the human development strategy, which puts people at the core of the development process.
