India Inequality Report

Recent findings point out that India is one of the most unequal countries in the world. The rise in inequality has started to hurt the Indian economy in a number of ways. Oxfam's India Inequality Report is looking into various aspects of socio-economic disparities. Using data on consumption, income, assets and wealth, the report will analyze the trends and extent of inequality by various axes including class, space, caste, region, gender etc. The report has a special focus on the socially marginalized communities and backward regions. The report will also study the impact on inequality on economic development and suggest ways to curb the dangerous rise in socio-economic disparities.
