Niti Ayog CEO Amitabh Kant releases Second Delta Ranking of Aspirational Districts Programme

@airnewss
Niti Ayog CEO Amitabh Kant today released the Second Delta Ranking of the Aspirational Districts Programme. The ranking  details the incremental progress achieved by the districts during June to October this year across six key development sectors. Virudhunagar district in Tamil Nadu has shown the most improvement overall, followed by Nuapada district in Odisha, Siddarthnagar in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar's Aurangabad and Koraput in Odisha. These districts have championed the development narrative in fundamental parameters of social progress.

Meanwhile, Nagaland's Kiphire district, Jharkhand's Giridih, Chatra in Jharkhand, Hailakandi in Assam, and Pakur in Jharkhand have shown least improvement. 

The districts have been ranked in a transparent basis on parameters across various performance indicators like Health and Nutrition, Education, Skill Development and Basic Infrastructure among others. The rankings are based on the data that is publicly available through the Champions of Change Dashboard, which includes data entered on a real-time basis at the district level. 

The Aspirational District Programme was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in January this year with the aim to rapidly transform the districts that have shown relatively lesser progress in key social areas. 

Speaking on the occasion, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said every district is competing and the spirit of Competitive Federalism is filtering down to the block level. He added that the rankings are a key metric which aim to capture qualitative improvement happening in fundamental governance structures across the aspirational districts.
