Abstract: The main concern of this paper is to examine the transformation of development efforts into the well-being of the society, with special reference to Jharkhand State of India. Human development in different districts of Jharkhand has no parallel pace of development among each other. Human Development Index (HDI) has a wider meaning than only an index for a region for development. The study highlights the indicators of human development, the level of development in various districts in a comparative way and assesses the human development in different districts by allotting ranks through arithmetic calculation provided by the UNDP. This paper examines the major factors of Human Development Index like health index, education index and income index. An attempt has been made to find out the trend of the human development index of Jharkhand State of India and also to provide ranking on the basis of human development. The results will provide useful policy insights for a strategy seeking to promote human development through a distributive pol icy option for Jharkhand State.
