Regional Inequality and ‘Inclusive Growth’ in India under Globalization: Identification of lagging states for strategic intervention
India has experienced a positive growth in development. With rates of employment, poverty reduction, positive demographic shifts and economic growth all high, India’s natural growth rate in population and fertility varies between the Northern and Southern States. Through statistical data represented in charts and graphs, this working paper analyses the trends and patterns of economic inequality across India’s States since the early 1990s and demonstrates the dynamics of growth resulting in regional imbalances by identifying which States are being excluded. It also proposes measures for alleviating deficiencies in the macro economic growth strategy (or the special programmes launched as a part of the policy of inclusive growth) and suggests how these can be remedied.
