Haryana is a leading state in the country on both the industrial and agricultural front. Haryana is one of the leading states in terms of industrial production, especially passenger cars, two-wheelers, mobile cranes and tractors. Haryana is the second-largest contributor of food grains to India’s central pool and accounts for more than 60 per cent of the export of Basmati rice in the country, third-largest exporter of software and one of the preferred destinations for IT/ITeS facilities.

Between 2004-05 and 2015-16, the state’s gross state domestic product (GSDP) expanded at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.12 per cent to US$ 75.3 billion and net state domestic product (NSDP) expanded at a CAGR of 11.75 per cent to US$ 71.6 billion.
