LEADS 2022 Survey Report

LEADS 2022 Survey Report:

Union Minister for Commerce and Industry, Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution and Textiles recently launched Logistics Ease Across Different States (LEADS) 2022 survey report.

  • The LEADS is an indigenous data-driven index to assess logistics infrastructure, services, and human resources across all 36 States and UTs.
  • The index is an indicator of the efficiency of logistical services necessary for promoting exports and economic growth.
  • The index aims at enhancing the focus on improving logistics performance across states which is essential for improving the country’s trade and reducing transaction cost.
  • Unlike the previous versions of LEADS which were based on ranking systems for all states, LEADS 2022 has adopted a classification-based grading, states have been now classified under four categories viz coastal states, hinterland/landlocked states, north-eastern states, and Union Territories.
  • Three performance categories namely,
    • Achievers: States/UTs achieving 90% or more percentage,
    • Andhra Pradesh, Assam and Gujarat are among the 15 States and UTs categorised as achievers.
    • Fast Movers: States/UTs achieving percentage scores between 80% to 90%,
      Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Puducherry, Sikkim and Tripura are the other States categorised as fast movers.
    • Aspirers: States/UTs achieving percentage scores below 80% have been made.
    • The 15 States and UTs ranked in the aspirers category include Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Mizoram, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, Ladakh, Nagaland, Jammu and Kashmir, and Arunachal Pradesh.
    • The LEADS 2022 survey report would assist PM GatiShakti National Master Plan (PMGS-NMP) and National Logistics Policy (NLP).
