The existing literature on Indian growth finds no evidence of convergence across states. This represents a puzzle given the relatively free flows of capital, labor and commodities across state borders. A new data set of district level income and socio-economic data is used to explore the hypotheses of conditional convergence, using distance as an indicator of internal geographical trade and migration costs. [ICRIER Working Paper 268].
