BRIEF FACTS ABOUT HIMACHAL PRADESH

Historical Background:

th
Himachal Pradesh came into being on 15 April,
1948 as a centrally administered territory by the
integration of 30 erstwhile princely States. At that
time the State had four districts viz. Chamba,
Mahasu, Mandi and Sirmaur and its area was 25,839 sq.
kms.

Later in 1951, it became a part “C” State
under a Governor with a 36 Member Legislative
Assembly and a three member cabinet. In 1954,
Bilaspur, another part ‘C’ State was merged with
Himachal Pradesh thereby adding one more district
with an area of 1,168 sq. kms. And the strength of
its Assembly was raised to 41.

In 1956, despite the majority recommendations
of the State Re-organisation Commission for its
merger with Punjab, Himachal Pradesh retained its
separate entity. On November 1, 1956 it again became
a Union Territory under an Administrator designated
as Lieutenant Governor and its Assembly was
abolished. In 1960, a new border district of Kinnaur
was carved out of Mahasu district. Then in 1963,
Assembly was revived and a popular Ministry was
formed. Till October, 1966 the old Himachal Pradesh
comprised the six hill districts of Bilaspur, Chamba,
Kinnaur, Mahasu, Mandi and Sirmaur with an area of
27,007 sq. kms. Having a population of 13,51,144
persons(1951 Census).

(ii)

———————– Page 9———————–

st
On 1 November, 1966, it was enlarged by
merging the district of Kangra, Shimla, Kullu,
Lahaul-Spiti, the Nalagarh tehsil of Ambala district,
some parts of Una tehsil of Hoshiarpur district and
Dalhousie of Gurdaspur district of the then Punjab
State. With this merger the total area of Himachal
Pradesh increased to 55,673 sq. kms. And its
population to 28,12,463(1961 Census). Now it
comprised the Districts of Bilaspur, Chamba, Kangra,
Kinnaur, Kullu, Lahaul-Spiti, Mahasu, Mandi, Shimla
th
and Sirmaur. On 25 January, 1971, Himachal Pradesh
attained Statehood.

Reorganisation of the districts took place on
1st September, 1972 as a consequence whereof two more

new districts namely Una and Hamirpur were created
mainly as a result of trifurcation of the erstwhile
Kangra district. Also from the then existing
districts of Mahasu and Shimla, new districts of
Shimla and Solan were formed by reorganizing the
boundaries of old districts.

Presently, the strength of Legislative
Assembly of Himachal Pradesh is 68. To the Union
Legislature, Himachal Pradesh is represented by 4
Members to Lok Sabha and 3 Members to Rajya Sabha.
The Pradesh has got a High Court and a Public Service
Commission located at Shimla. There are Five
Govt. Universities in the Pradesh. One for general
education with its seat at Shimla, the other
Agricultural University with its seat at Palampur,
the third is Horticulture and Forestry University
with its seat at Nauni(Solan),Fourth Technical
University with its seat at Hamirpur and Fifth is
Center University with its seat at Dharamshala in
Kangra District (H.P.)

Physical Features:

Himachal Pradesh is almost wholly mountainous
with altitudes ranging from 350 metres to 6,975
metres above the mean sea level. Its location is
between Latitude 30o o
22’40” N to 33 12’40” N and
Longitude 75o o
45’55”E to 79 04’20” E. It has deeply
dissected topography complex geological structure and
a rich temperate flora in the sub-tropical latitudes.
Physiographically, the State can be divided in to
five zones-viz. (i) Wet Sub-temperate zone,(ii) humid
sub-temperate zone, (iii) dry temperate-alpine high
lands, (iv) humid sub-tropical zone, and(v) sub-humid
sub-tropical zone. Wet sub-temperate zone comprises
Palampur and Dharamshala of Kangra district,
Jogindernagar area of Mandi district and Dalhousie
area of Chamba district, humid sub-temperate zone
comprises the district of Kullu, Shimla, parts of
Mandi, Solan, Chamba, Kangra and Sirmaur, Dry
temperate- Alpine High lands include major parts of
Lahaul-Spiti, Pangi and Kinnaur, humid sub-tropical
zone consists of Bilaspur, Bhattiyat valley of
District Chamba, Nalagarh area of District Solan,
Dehragopipur and Nurpur areas of district Kangra and
sub-humid tropical zone comprises of District Una,
Paonta-Sahib area of District Sirmaour, and Indora
area of District Kangra.

Climate:

Himachal Pradesh lies in the lap of Himalayas.
Its climate is largely conditioned by that single
factor. It varies from mild to cold with area under
snowing winters. The normal rainfall is 1278 mm. The
maximum rainfall is in Kangra district.

Soils:

The soils of Himachal Pradesh can be broadly
divided into nine groups on the basis of their
development and physiochemical properties. These
groups are alluvial soils, brown hill soils, brown
earths, brown forest soils, grey wooded or podzolic
soils, grey brown podzolic soils, plansolic soils,
humus and iron podzols and Alpine humus mountain
skeletal soils.

Rivers:
Rivers which flow through this State are Beas
in Kullu, Mandi and Kangra districts, Satluj in
Kinnaur, Shimla and Bilaspur districts, Yamuna has
its tributaries in Shimla and Sirmaur districts,
Chenab (Chander Bhaga) flows through Lahaul-Spiti and
Chamba districts and Ravi through Chamba district.

(v)

———————– Page 12———————–

All these rivers are snow-fed and hence
perennial. Besides the natural reservoirs and the
large drops available in the river courses provide
immense potential for hydel power generation at a low
cost.

Population:

Himachal Pradesh extends over an area of
55,673 sq. kms. According to 2011 census, the total
population of the state is 68,64,602 with a density
of 123 persons. The highest density 407 is in
Hamirpur district and the lowest 2 in Lahaul-Spiti
district. According to 2011 census, Number of
females per thousand males is 972. The decennial
growth rate is 12.9 per cent during 2001-2011.

Livestock Population:

According to 2007 livestock census, the total
livestock population in the State was 52,16,686 and
the total poultry was 8,O9,546.

Land Holdings :

There is a preponderance of small land
holdings in the Pradesh. According to
2005-06 Agricultural Census, the holdings of less
than one hectare accounted for 68.3 per cent of the
total holdings whereas the area covered by these
holdings formed only 26.7 per cent of the total area.
If small farmers are also taken into account with
marginal farmers, then the percentage of holdings
comes to 87.1 whereas the area coverage upto 2.0
hectares size-class is only 25.3 per cent.The
Average size of holding was 1.0 hectares in 2005-06.
vi

———————– Page 13———————–

Agriculture :

Agriculture is the main occupation of the
people of the state. About 69 per cent of the main
workers are engaged in agricultural pursuits.
Agriculture is beset with the disadvantage of small
holdings. Only 75 per cent of the total reporting
area is available for cultivation. Out of this area,
‘net area sown’ and ‘current fallows’ account for
only 13 per cent. There is hardly any scope for
mechanized farming due to preponderance of small
holdings and terraced fields. Against all these odds,
the farmers of Himachal Pradesh are constantly
endeavoring to exploit fully the agricultural
potential of the State to increase food production
and also to supplement the income by producing
quality cash crops. Wheat, barley, paddy and maize
are the important cereal crops under cultivation.
Seed potato, ginger and off-season vegetables are the
important cash crops. There is potential for the
development of crops like hops, mushrooms, olives,
saffron and zeera.

(vii)

———————– Page 14———————–
Horticulture :

Horticulture in the upper reaches and
mid hills and cereals in the valley seems
to be the schematic design of the things, the
nature has designed of Himachal Pradesh.
Himachal Pradesh Government and the farmers have
seized this opportunity and today this Pradesh
has emerged as the ‘Horticultural State of
India’. Apple is the major horticultural crop, the
production of which was 412.36 lakh tonne during
2012-13. Bulk of the apple is produced in five
districts viz. Shimla, Kullu, Mandi, Kinnaur and
Chamba.

Power :

Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board is
engaged in the investigation and execution of various
hydro electric projects and transmission and
distribution of electricity. It is a matter of
satisfaction that despite very difficult and
mountaineous terrains almost all the inhabited
villages in the State have been electrified.

Himachal Pradesh has a vast hydro electric
potential which is estimated at 23,000 MW. The total
installed capacity (hydro and diesel) in Himachal
Pradesh as on 31st March, 2013 was 477.5 MW (Hydro

477.4 MW and diesel 0.1 MW).

(viii)

———————– Page 15———————–

Industries :

Himachal Pradesh has made significant
achievements in the field of industrialization. The
process of industrialization in the State started
during the eighties and gained momentum during the
decade. Up to December,2012, there were 494 medium
and large scale industries and about 38,592 small
scale industries with a total investment of Rs.
16,588.56 crore in the State. These industries
provide employment to about 2.11 lakh persons.

Roads :

In a hilly state like Himachal Pradesh, the
entire progress depends primarily on the development
of roads. It is not possible to provide appreciable
length of railways in these areas. No movement of any
type of material and persons in various fields like
agriculture, horticulture, industry is at all
possible unless there is a well developed system of
roads and road transport. Thus the roads constitute
the very life line of Himachal’s economy. The density
of motorable roads per 100 sq. kms. Of area in
Himachal Pradesh stood at 59.21 km. as at the end of
2012-13.

Transport :

Road transport is the principal mode of
transportation in Himachal Pradesh. Passenger
Transport is managed by a Government Owned Himachal

(ix)

———————– Page 16———————–

Road Transport Corporation(H.R.T.C.). As on 31st

March, 2013 this Corporation had 2076 buses, 16
trucks and 51 other vehicles. There are only two
narrow gauge railway lines connecting Shimla with
Kalka (96km.) and Jogindernagar with Pathankot(113
km.)and one 33 km. broad gauge railway line from
Nangaldam to Charuru for Una District. At present
there are only three Airports namely Shimla at Jubbar
Hatti, Kangra at Gaggal and Kullu at Bhuntar.

Education:

In terms of literacy, literacy percentage of
the Pradesh has increased from 76.5 in 2001 to 82.8
in 2011 as against All-India literacy rate of 74.0
per cent to achieve 100 percent literacy in the
State, a literacy mission has been started in each
district with the co-ordination of Primary Education
Deptt. And the Distt. Saksharta Samiti under the
chairmanship of Deputy Commissioners.

(x)

———————– Page 17———————–

There were Functional 10,739 Primary, 2,317
Middle Schools and 2,162 High/10+2 Schools as on
31 March, 2013.

Public Health and Family Welfare:

Due to successful implementation of various
health programmes the health of the people of the
State has improved. Special attention has been paid
to the provision of health and medical care services
in the remotest rural areas of the Pradesh. Disease
control and eradication programmes have given rich
dividends. Total number of medical institutions in
Government sector stood at 3,824 on 31st March, 2013.

State Income:

According to quick estimates, the per capita
income of Himachal Pradesh in 2012-13(Advance) stood
at Rs.82611. This shows an increase of 10.60 percent
over 2011-12(Rs.74694) in the State.
