The human development paradigm introduced in the early 1990s sought to shift focus from national income as the only indicator of development to expanding the choices people have. The concept of human development was introduced by the United Nations Development Programme in 1990 in the first global Human Development Report. In India, this coincided with a period of rapid growth and rising inequalities, where a need was felt to reinforce the idea that people matter, and India welcomed the concept of human development. Today, India has produced the highest number of HDRs in the world. Twenty-one Indian states have released HDRs and 80 districts are preparing district-level HDRs.
