India did not achieve any progress in Human Development Index in the Human Development Report published by the UNDP(united nations development project) by retaining the 134th rank. Interesting fact is India unable to perform well in the fields of primary health, Nutrition, basic amenities which are the key indices for calculating Human development Index ,despite we are maintaining good track record in economic and finacial sectors. This is a perfect instance for the economic disparities and disequilibrium of Indian society. Leading Economists Amartya Sen-Mahbub ul Haq unveiled the formula for calculating Human Development Index.
The HDI combines three dimensions:
* Life expectancy at birth, as an index of population health and longevity
* Knowledge and education, as measured by the adult literacy rate (with two-thirds weighting) and the combined primary, secondary, and tertiary gross enrollment ratio (with one-third weighting).
* Standard of living, as measured by the natural logarithm of gross domestic product per capita at purchasing power parity.
