The India Innovation Index examines the innovation ecosystem of Indian states and union territories. The objective of the Index is to help policymakers design policies aimed at driving innovation across regions. For a country as large as India, the state of innovation needs to be understood at the regional level for effective policy formulation. A policy just at the national level is not enough. Each state needs to formulate its own policy, based on its unique resources and strengths and which caters to its specific needs.
