Abstract: In this paper we examine the dynamics of income distribution pattern in India during post-1991 economic reforms. We consider district-level per-capita income data spreading across agriculture, manufacturing, services, and various constituent subsectors. We find evidence in favour of uniform growth process across sectors and regions, and this has helped to reduce poverty. In particular we find that growth in agricultural income and access to finance are important for reducing poverty.
