Delhi has emerged as the top-ranked state in terms of overall “internet readiness” due to better e-infrastructure and e-participation, according to a survey conducted by Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) and market research firm Nielsen.
As per the report, titled ‘Index of Internet Readiness of Indian States’ national capital is followed by Karnataka, Maharashtra, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
Among the northeastern states, Nagaland tops the list, closely followed by Manipur and Tripura. Nagaland leads in IT environment and performs moderately well in other categories to get to the top.
“Significantly, even within smaller states, the northeastern states ranked low in terms of overall Internet readiness. Therefore, much more needs to be done in the form of investment and infrastructure development in the region,” the report said.
