Gujarat - Poverty, growth, and inequality (English)

Gujarat is home to 60 million people, of whom one-sixth are poor. Since 2005, the state has made significant progress in reducing poverty, supported by high growth and low inequality in consumption. Despite being one of India’s fastest growing states, poverty reduction in Gujarat was slower than in other advanced states in the country. As a result, some parts of Gujarat continue to face high levels of poverty.
