ABSTRACT

Member countries of United Nations were required to meet the set  targets of Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. These goals were  fixed in 2015 across 17 sectors. India took promising steps in meeting  these goals but still remains a long way off its targets. The SDG India  Index data compiled by Niti Aayog in 2019 show that of the 104 sub  indicators measured for the 17 SDG, India has only met 6 targets so far.  India stunted progress seems to have been due to wider gaps among states.  Have a look at India’s progress on 12 selected socio-economic sub  indicators. See the tabulate.
