With numerous perennial rivers flowing into the state, Himachal Pradesh boasts a rich natural environment adorned with scenic hill stations and valleys. It is a popular tourist destination and this along with agriculture, adds to the state’s economy significantly. The hydroelectricity produced in Himachal Pradesh is sold to other states like Delhi, Rajasthan and Punjab. It had the fifteenth highest per capita income in India for the year 2013-14 and a survey by an international organisation in 2017 revealed Himachal Pradesh to be the least corrupt state in the country.
