The other large states perform better on the Governance Processes Aiding Outcomes category, with the most noticeable performance differences observed in the cases of Odisha, Punjab and Haryana.

The first edition of SEQI was released by NITI Aayog Vice-Chairman Dr Rajiv Kumar where Aayog Member Dr Vinod Paul and CEO Amitabh Kant were among those present. Of the eight small states, seven performed better on the Outcomes category, with the most noticeable performance differences observed in the cases of Manipur, Tripura and Goa. Sikkim is the only Small State that performed better on the Governance Processes Aiding Outcomes category. Of the seven UTs, four performed better on the Outcomes category, with the most noticeable performance differences observed in Dadra & Nagar Haveli. Delhi, Daman & Diu and Lakshadweep perform better on the Governance Processes Aiding Outcomes category. In line with NITI Aayog’s mandate to foster the spirit of competitive and cooperative federalism, SEQI strives to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and best practices across States and UTs
