"The report reflects overall prosperity in Delhi and changing trend of various sectors," Dikshit said.

With little land left for agriculture, the contribution of primary sector including livestock, forestry, mining and quarrying to the GSDP has decreased whereas services sector comprising trade, hotels and restaurant, transport and communication have enhanced their contributions.

At 2.18 lakh crore at current prices, the GSDP of the national capital is on the ninth position amongst states and UTs.

"It is estimated higher than the adjacent state of Haryana, which is placed at 11th rank with GSDP estimates of Rs. 2.16 lakh crore."
