One the other hand, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Assam fare worst in the rankings, he told reporters here.

Kant presented the rankings based on key development and social indicators across states and union territories during a national conference of Chief Secretaries.

Similarly, based on availability of electricity in rural households, he said, the best-performing states are Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Kerala, Punjab and Tamil Nadu, which have achieved 100 per cent penetration.

"The bottom three are Bihar with 46 percent, Nagaland with 45 percent and Jharkhand with 40 percent," he said.

In nutrition, Kerala, Goa and Tripura are the best-performing states while Meghalaya, Jharkhand and Bihar are the worst, Kant said.

Tamil Nadu, Mizoram and Kerala come out on top in terms of reading comprehension while Uttarakhand, Chattisgarh and Bihar are at the bottom.

"My intention was to tell all the states where they stand in comparison to each other in the fields of electricity, connectivity, infrastructure, health, education and so on, so they could improve," he said.
