According to a report released by the ministry of human resource and development, union territory Chandigarh has once again topped in the country in the performance grading index (PGI). Overall Chandigarh has scored 896 out of 1,000 points. Last year, the UT scored 841 out of 1,000 points. Chandigarh together with Gujarat and Kerala have jumped to level-III (score 851-900) or Grade I+. According to the statement by MHRD, it was the first such instance when two states (Kerala and Gujarat) along with a UT (Chandigarh) have crossed the threshold of 85 per cent PGI score and reached Grade I+.

For the academic year 2018-19, this performance grading index is applicable. The index has been made by MHRD after holding discussions with NITI Aayog. In 2019, the PGI for the states and union territories was first published for the reference year 2017-18. The current publication, PGI 2018-19 at State/UT level, has been drafted with the same set of 70 factors used for PGI 2017-18.

Chandigarh has displayed the highest improvement (13.89 per cent) in government processes that deal with pointers pertaining to management and administration of school education. The UT displayed minimum improvement in equity domain (0.43 per cent) which deals with pointers pertaining to the comparative performance of learning results of several categories of students including general, scheduled castes/scheduled tribes, rural and urban areas, boys and girls. It also takes into consideration children with special needs (CWSN). The PGI indicators have been classified into two broad groups – governance and outcome processes.
