The rich keep getting richer in India! Says who?
AbstractThis paper considers the dynamics of income distributional pattern in India. If reforms are pro-rich then would see emergence of twin peaks in the underlying income distribution function in India (i.e.clustering of the rich people, and clustering of the poor people). On the other hand, a uniform growth process at a pan-India level will lead to the disappearance of any such clusters.
