London’s World Book Of Records recognizes Sikkim as the world’s first biological and crime-free state
Sikkim has been recognized as the world’s first biological and crime-free state and received this recognition by the “World Book of Records London”. This honor highlights that the northeastern state has become the first state in the world to implement a 100% organic policy.
The first biological state in the world
In a report by The Indian Weekender, Ganga Prasad, the Governor of Sikkim, received the citation at an event held in Gangtok. The quote read: “The State of Sikkim (India) was included for being the first biological state in the world and a crime-free state with the best governance.”
The Chairman of the World Book of Records, Dr Diwakar Sukul, and British Member of Parliament Virendra Sharma thanked the Governor of Sikkim and the State on the occasion.
This award highlighted Sikkim’s status as the first state in the world to establish a 100% organic policy, which essentially ended the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This change has helped more than 66,000 farming households.
The state also won the prestigious Future Policy Gold Award from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), beating out 51 nominees worldwide. Former Sikkim CM Pawan Kumar Chamling won the prestigious honour.
In a report by Northeast Today, Sikkim’s policy of good governance in the economy and environment has promoted the equitable distribution of wealth. Additionally, the sustainable economic model provided the residents of the state with equal opportunity to thrive, which ultimately made the state crime-free.
