Haryana is the 16th largest state in area and population. This state has a very fertile land.  Called as the "Green Land of India", the modern state of Haryana came into being on November 1st 1966. The State is bounded by Uttar Pradesh in east, Punjab in west, Himachal Pradesh in north and Rajasthan in south. Union Territory of Delhi just into Haryana.

Haryana can be divided into two natural area sub-Himalayan Terai and Indo-Gangetic plain. The plain is fertile and slopes from north to south with a height above the sea level, averaging between 700 and 900 ft. South-west of Haryana is dry, sandy and barren. Haryana has no perennial river. The only river which flows through Haryana is the Ghaggar, which passes through northern fringes of the state. For most of the year, climate of Haryana is of a pronounced character-very hot in summer and markedly cold in winter.

Haryana has a proud history going back to the vedic age. The state was the home of the legendry Bharata dynasty, which has given the name "Bharat" to India. Haryana is immortalised in the great epic Mahabharata, Kurukshetra, the scene of the epic battle between the Kaurvas and the Pandavas, is situated in Haryana. The state continued to play a leading role in the history of India till the advent of Muslims and the rise of Delhi as the imperial capital of India. Thereafter, Haryana functioned as an adjunct to Delhi and practically remained anonymous till the first war of India's Independence in 1857, when the people of Haryana joined the leaders of Indian revolt against the British Government.

This state has an agriculture based economy. About 80% of its people depend on agriculture for their livelihood.

The state also has a very sound industrial base. Haryana produces the largest number of tractors in the country. It is well-known for its handloom products. Panipat has earned the reputation of being the "weaver's city" of India for its exquisite hand-tufted woollen carpets and colourful handloom products.

Major irrigation projects are Western Yamuna Canal, Bhakra Canal System and Gurgaon Canal. The state has completed Jui Loharu and Sewani lift irrigation schemes.
