2020 Democracy Index
The 2020 Democracy Index was released by the Economist Intelligence Unit. The list classifies 167 countries as full democracies, flawed democracies, hybrid regimes and authoritarian regimes. India came under the flawed democracy category and fell two places to 53rd position in the recent report. However, it performed better than the neighbouring nations. Its overall score declined to 6.61. Asia’s average regional score reduced to the lowest since 2013 due to the COVID-19 measures.
