Abstract

The objective of this paper is to analyze trends in inequalities in India and Punjab during the recent period. Based on the available secondary information, the paper has analyzed trends in inequalities in terms of assets and consumption expenditure. Results reveal that there is a huge inter-sectoral inequality in India. Further, strong presence of inequality was reported in terms of per capita assets ownership between rural and urban households. Besides, the presence of inter-personal inequalities was very high in India and it has been widening overtime. Similar trends were reported in case of Punjab. Punjab has also recorded high concentration of assets and wealth ownership in fewer hands. The paper draws some implications and policy lessons for state intervention.

Key Words

inter-sectoral inequality, assets and consumption expenditure, wealth ownership.
