Industrially developed states like Gujarat, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu have clinched the top rankings in the government’s new Export Preparedness Index, 2020.

Released on Wednesday, the index maps the export scenario in each state and ‘will help identify strategic recommendations for improving export competitiveness,’ according to the NITI Aayog. 

The central public think-tank has bet on the index heavily to provide critical insights into the challenges of the export process. Created over the past 12-15 months, the index will guide policy making in the export segment with an eye on achieving a $5-trillion economy within 2024, senior NITI Aayog officials said.
