India Today recently declared Sikkim the best performing small state in two categories - “cleanliness” and “most improved small state in governance” in the India Today e-State of the States Conclave 2020.

The conclave was held virtually on December 5.

The annual India Today “The State of States” study is an attempt to find out which state in India offers its citizens the best opportunities, in the business environment and the quality of life.

The study tracks each state’s performance over time and records the changes over the last five years.

The categories on which they judge the states include economy, agriculture, education, health care, infrastructure, inclusive development, law and order, governance, entrepreneurship, environment and cleanliness.

While accepting the award, Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang stated that it would have not been possible without the involvement, participation, sense of ownership and efforts by the Sikkimese gentry.

“Their single-minded effort has made the state a pinnacle in cleanliness and tourism,” he said.
