Objectives: This study illustrates how major industrial states in India suffer with industrial disparity and centralization.

Methods/Findings: We use two mathematical models: (1) Localization Coefficients to identify which major industries are suffering by industrial concentration and (2) Location Quotient which is a simple method for measuring regional industrial specialization. It shows us the propensity of industries for dispersal between the major Indian industrial states. The recommendations for policy makers through this research are that they can easily determine the lack of industrialization in a particular region and industry.

Application: This research helps to understand that those regions are either less specialized regions or concentrated with few industries.
