The Planning Commission objective in bringing out these Reports is to provide a credible, independent and quality reference document on the development profile and to set out strategies for accelerating the growth rate of States, lessen disparities ad reduce poverty. The SDR is meant to discuss the constraints and challenges faced by a State and provide a vision and a blueprint for its socio-economic progress. Each SDR is being prepared with the assistance of reputed expert national-level agencies, under the supervision of a Core Committee, headed by a Member of the Planning Commission, and including a senior representative of the State Government. The publication of the Uttarakhand Development Report follows the earlier published SDRs of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka, Lakshadweep, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh, while SDRs of many other States and Union Territories are under various stages of preparation. Joining previous editions on other Indian states, the Uttarakhand Development Report reviews the experience of Uttarakhand and highlights issues critical for the State's development in the years ahead.
