Despite its high economic growth, India has been ranked lower than its neighbours, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, on the multi-dimensional poverty index (MPI) and gender inequality index (GII) by the United Nations Development Programme.

The global Human Development Report released on Wednesday, however, ranks India 134 among 187 countries, higher than Pakistan but lower than Sri Lanka in the human development index (HDI).

Norway is top and Congo bottom of the index that measures healthy life, access to knowledge and a decent standard of living. (Source: Hindustan Times)
