The Planning Commission has decided to prepare State Development Reports (SDRs) for all States and Union Territories of India. The objective in bringing out these reports is to provide a credible independent quality reference document on the development profile, set out strategies for accelerating the growth rate of States, lessen disparities and reduce poverty. The SDR is meant to discuss the constraints and challenges faced by a State and provide a vision, blueprint or a roadmap for its socio-economic progress

Each SDR is being prepared with the assistance of reputed expert national-level agencies, under the supervision of a Core Committee, headed by a Member of the Planning Commission, and including a senior representative of the State Government. The publication of the Uttar Pradesh Development Report follows the recently published SDRs of Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh, while SDRs of many other States and Union Territories of India are under various stages of preparation.

The Uttar Pradesh Development Report reviews the State's development experience and highlights issues critical for its future progress. Uttar Pradesh's latent potential in irrigation, power, transport, agriculture, and tourism is well documented in the report. The report is expected to serve as a useful reference and stimulate informed debate on the policy issues facing the most populous state of the country.
