Following conclusions can be drawn, based on the experiences of this study tour to India and J&K State:
a. According to a survey of a neutral think tank, J&K State belongs, within India, to the states with a high degree of corruption. A change of mentality/mindset is required to be brought in J&K State.
b. Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad is appreciated very much, being sincere, hard working, honest, having good contacts with Delhi and bringing a lot of funds for the developmental projects in the State.
