Per capita income is the amount of income being earned by a person in a certain region. In other words, it is defined as the mean income of people in an economic unit such as a city or a country. It can be calculated by taking measure of all sources of income in aggregate (like GDP) and dividing it by the total population. The per capita income is often calculated to measure standard of living in a country. This way it helps to locate the development status of the nations. However, critics claim that per capita income solely cannot accurately measure prosperity of a country.

In 2012-13, the per capita income of India was Rs. 5,729 per month at current prices. The World Bank has ranked India at 120th position out of 164 nations. The annual per capita income amounted to Rs. 68,747. However, the annual per capita income rose to Rs. 74,920 in 2013-14 showing a growth of 10.4%. Although the per capita income is low, the size of average household and the consequent household incomes are higher. In 2011, there was an average of about 4.9 people per household in the country.

There has been some disparity among states over the average income. Bihar, Nagaland, Jammu & Kashmir, Manipur and Assam are some of the states with the least per capital income, whereas, some of the states such as Goa, Haryana, Punjab, Maharashtra, Kerala and Gujarat are ones with a high per capita income.

This disparity is not only about the states. There is also a gap between the urban and the rural belt of the country in terms of income. Even though less than one-third of the population live in cities and towns, they contribute more than two-thirds of the GDP of the country. The increase in urbanisation is considered one of the main reasons for this economic disparity. The government of India is making efforts to bridge a gap between these different strata of society.

Here, on this page you can find a map on India's per capita income in different states. You can check the data for different financial years by clicking on the particular year. By moving the cursor on a state, you can see the per capita income of the state. The levels of the income are indicated in different colours. You can also check the maps showing state-wise per capita income across two financial years 2009-10 and 2012-13.
