The assessment of human development by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) through their approach as ‘human development is about enlarging human choices’, shifted the focus of policy makers, academicians and researchers from ‘economic aspects (especially per-capita gross national product)’ to human development. This research paper attempts to explore the inter district disparities in human development in Chhattisgarh state over the period of 2001-02 to 2011-12. In this paper Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method has been used for computation of composite index of human development. This study concludes that districts such as Durg, Dhamtari, Raipur, Korba Rajnandgaon has been found highly developed followed by Koriya, Kanker, Bilaspur and Mahasamund as medium developed districts. Low developed districts of Chhattisgarh have been Jajgir-Champa, Raigarh. Extremely backward districts have been Dantewada, Bastar, Surguja, Kawardha and Jashpur.
