11. Jharkhand
Jharkhand, carved out of Bihar in the year 2000, is highly rich in minerals. It also is a heavily industrialized state. Yet, for long, the state has been dogged by corruption at all levels of government, semi-government and private sector establishments. TI-India categorises Jharkhand as 'Highly Corrupt.' Shibu Soren, the new chief minister of the state, is now faced with the gargantuan challenge of checking corruption and helping the state grow faster than ever.




12. Kerala
Sponsored ads For long the economy of Kerala, one of India's most literate states, had been financed by petro-dollars sent by people from the state working overseas, especially in the Persian Gulf region. The state has been going through a series of problems trying to raise the level industrialisation, usher in a free market economy, attract higher foreign direct investment, and establish a healthy services sector. The domineering presence of Leftist unions has to an extent curbed Kerala's ambitions. Yet, the standard of living in Kerala is among the best in India. The state has a very well developed tourism, banking and finance, and communications sectors. Yet it suffers from a high level of joblessness fuelling corruption. It has thus been categorized as 'Highly Corrupt.' V S Achuthanandan is the state chief minister.





13. Orissa
Mineral-rich Orissa is now attracting foreign direct investment and mega projects like no other state. The state is blessed with heavy iron ore deposits and many a steel plant. Despite the high level of poverty in the state, Orissa has been in the forefront of privatization and economic reforms. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's Orissa, however, is hardly free from corruption and is said to be 'Highly Corrupt.




14. Andhra Pradesh

Andhra Pradesh, rich in agricultural and services sector also has a vibrant industrialised economy. A vibrant information technology sector has seen the state emerge as one of India's largest exporters of IT and software services. This sector has also generated large-scale employment in the urban areas of the state. But for Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy things aren't all rosy. . . especially since he needs to curb the rampant corruption in the state that has been bracketed as 'Moderately Corrupt.'





15. Haryana
Haryana has emerged as a major hub for IT and BPO firms. It is also a huge manufacturing base for many a global company, having received a massive amount of foreign direct investment. The state's business-friendly policies have seen it grow on all parameters of economic development. It is also one of India's richest states. Transparency International India, however, categorises it as 'Moderately Corrupt.' If corruption were to be reduced in the state, its prosperity and growth would be electrifying. Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda will, apart from industrialisation, have to now focus on this aspect of human development too.

16. Himachal Pradesh
Himachal Pradesh, blessed with stunning natural beauty, is a major tourist attraction. It has fairly impressive infrastructure in place and its economy is largely agriculture-dependent. The state also has mega hydro-electric projects. The tentacles of corruption have Himachal too in its grip: the TI survey says it is 'Moderately Corrupt.' Prem Kumar Dhumal is the state's chief minister.




17. Maharashtra
Maharashtra is India's most industrialised state. It is also one of the richest. It has a great mix of giant industrial units, well developed agricultural base, flourishing services sector, a fairly free market economy, and a booming financial, banking, and insurance sector. The state is home to India's financial capital Mumbai, and to the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange. It is also home to Bollywood, the nation's Hindi film and television industry. Although, a 'Moderately Corrupt' state, Maharashtra needs to weed out the menace to grow ever faster economically and on the human development index. Vilasrao Deshmukh is current chief minister of the state.



18. Punjab
Punjab has an impressive mix of industrial and agricultural economy. The hub of many a manufacturing unit, Punjab's mainstay is agriculture. It is also ranked amongst India's richest states. Unfortunately, it is also has widespread corruption which has seen TI categorise it as being 'Moderately Corrupt,' something that should worry Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.




19. Uttarakhand
Uttarakhand was formed when it was carved out of Uttar Pradesh. The new state has been trying to attract foreign and domestic companies to invest in the state by giving tax concessions. It has a very entrepreneur-friendly policy. Uttarakhand is blessed with natural beauty that helps promote tourism. It also has many dams where it seeks investment to set up huge power projects. Corruption here is comparatively low and it is categorised as 'Moderately Corrupt,' something Chief Minister B C Khanduri can take some solace from.




20.West Bengal
The economy of West Bengal, currently in the news due to the huge controversy over Tata Motors' small car plant at Singur, depends mainly on agriculture. However, the Left-ruled state has been trying to break through the shackles of anti-liberalisation and aggressive workers' unions, with Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya at the helm of affairs. The state has been trying to attract investment in the industries and services sectors, but the going has been slow and painful. Being economically backward, the state becomes a hotbed for corruption. Yet, the menace is not as debilitating here as in some other -- and richer -- Indian states. TI-India survey says West Bengal is 'Moderately Corrupt.' West Bengal, despite its problems, is one of the fastest growing states in India due to rapid industrialisation and a booming information technology sector. By the way, the West Bengal is also a power-surplus state.
