India’s Rank in Different Indexes 2024: Complete List

5/5 - (2 votes)

India’s rank in different indexes: A 2024 Snapshot is a key topic in the latest current affairs 2024. In today’s post, you can uncover India’s remarkable rankings in diverse indexes for 2024, featuring a comprehensive list, month-wise breakdown, domestic index details, and additional key points on rank and index performance.

Before diving in, let’s unpack why these rankings are crucial for India and what “rank” and “index” mean.

Read the rest of the article to understand ranks and indexes comprehensively.

Why Do Rankings and Indexes Matter for India?

Various organizations and agencies annually release lists ranking countries based on global parameters. These indicators reflect a country’s performance, considering socio-economic, political, and other factors. Understanding why rankings and indexes matter for India is crucial.

  • Tracking India’s Progress: Comparing India’s rankings on different indexes over time helps us gauge the country’s progress and development relative to others globally.
  • Identifying Improvement Areas: Low rankings, such as on the Global Hunger Index, highlight areas where India needs improvement, like enhancing food security and minimizing food wastage.
  • Attracting Investment and Tourism: India’s high global rankings, such as on the Human Development Index and the Ease of Doing Business Index, make it more appealing to foreign investors and tourists.
  • Upholding India’s Reputation: India’s strong presence in global indexes indicates that it is a favourable place to live, work, and conduct business, contributing to its positive global reputation.

What are the differences between Rank and Index?

The terms “rank” and “index” in global indexes like the Hunger Index and Peace Index convey related but distinct information:


  • Individual position: Refers to a country’s specific numerical position within the index ranking. For example, in the 2023 Global Hunger Index, India ranks 111th out of 121 countries.
  • Relative comparison: This helps compare a country’s performance relative to others. Lower numbers in a negative index (e.g., the Hunger Index) signify better performance, while higher numbers indicate worse.
  • Limited insight: Rank alone doesn’t provide detailed information about the factors affecting a country’s score.


  • Overall score: This represents a country’s performance based on the specific methodology and indicators used in the index.
  • Composite measure: This measure considers numerous indicators and data points to create a single score. For example, the Global Peace Index considers factors like internal conflict, military expenditures, and homicide rates.
  • Deeper understanding: This allows for a finer understanding of a country’s strengths and weaknesses in the index’s focus area.

Here’s an analogy

Think of a race. Each runner’s rank tells you their finishing position compared to others. The index (in this case, the race time) provides a more comprehensive measure of individual performance, allowing for analysis of pace, splits, and other factors beyond just the final position.

In summary

  • Rank: Tells where a country stands compared to others within the index.
  • Index: Provides a more comprehensive measure of a country’s performance based on the specific criteria of the index.

Why India’s Ranking is Important for Competitive Exams?

Aspirants preparing for government exams such as RRB NTPC, SSC CHSL, SSC CGL, Banking, UPSC, and others may find this resource valuable. In these competitive exams, India’s latest ranking and the country’s first rank in the respective indices are asked.

The following are examples of what type of questions can be asked in competitive exams.

  • India’s Rank in Different Global Index?
  • First/top country in Different Global Index?
  • Organization Who Published/Released the Index

Final Word

India’s ranking in different Global and Domestic indexes in 2024 is an important topic for government exam aspirants to be aware of. It can evaluate the country’s progress on various issues, such as economic growth, human development, and sustainability.

Overall, the country has made significant progress in recent years on several fronts, such as economic growth, poverty reduction, and access to education and healthcare. However, there are still several areas where India needs to improve, such as infrastructure development, gender equality, and environmental protection.
