India has dropped 10 places to be ranked 51st of 167 independent territories in the Democracy Index 2019 - a list of the most democratic countries in the world - said the Economist, a news and general affairs publication, in its annual report. Expressing concern over the "discriminatory Citizenship (Amendment) Act", the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and the controversial NRC (national register of citizens) , the Economist cited "democratic regression (in) erosion of civil liberties" as a major reason in awarding a score of 6.9 on 10 - its lowest since the index was first published in 2006.
