AGARTALA, Aug 14 (TIWN): Tripura’s per capita income has increased a lot and the state now stands in the 6th position, said Law Minister Ratanlal Nath in evening press conference.

Addressing media at the Secretariat, Nath said, “As you know, this Govt is a different type of Govt. How would anyone do assessment of a Govt ? It’s through its growth rate only. Only Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) can measure the developmental growth. Who says what, it does not matter. What does Manik Sarkar says, Jishnu Babu says, Ratanlal Nath says it is not at all factors but three factors are important to measure. First one is : Primary Sector like Forest, Fishing, Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal husbandry, then Secondary Sector Industry and third is about transport, trade, railways, repairs, banking, insurance etc which is very important. In Left era the GSDP was 43,687 crores 80 lakhs. Now under Biplab Deb Govt it turned 2018-20 at 49, 836 crore 89 lakhs and in 2019-20 it turned 55,358 crores 8 lakhs”.

“In 2017-18 per capita income was 1 lakh 370, in 2018-19 it turned 1 lakh 12 thousand 812 and then in 2019-20 1 lakh 23 thousand 630. Now it is going 1.32 lakhs already”, said Ratanlal Nath, adding, “Tripura stands at 6th position in per capita income among all states whereas West Bengal, Assam, Odisha, Rajasthan etc are less than Tripura”, said Ratanlal Nath.

“Job does not matter in economic growth, but the per capita income matters”, he added.
