Per Capita Income of Various Indian States [2016]

[Note:This post has been updated to show the most recent numbers]

The Government of India recently released the per capita Income numbers and India’s capital city Delhi has come out to have the highest per capita income in the country.

Interestingly the PCI of Delhi is over 7 times higher than state of Bihar and 4 times more than 9 other states. Given that Delhi is a Union Territory, it may not be a right comparison, even then the difference is too large to take notice.

Delhi’s per capita income stood at Rs. 2,01,083 as compared to Bihar’s 22,890. PCI for 6 Indian states is not available, including Gujarat, Kerala, Mizoram, Chandigarh, Rajasthan and Goa.

In 2012, Goa had the highest Per Capita Income followed by Delhi. It very well may be true this time as well, however, we cannot confirm due to non-availability of Figures.

The State/UT-wise estimates of Per Capita Income (measured as Per Capita Net State Domestic Product) at current prices for the last three years and corresponding percentage change over the previous year are given as below:-

Per Capita Income growth

2012 Report

Did you know that Goa has the highest per capita income in India and on the other hand Uttar Pradesh has the lowest!

Ok, if you are confused about what Per Capita income is – here is a short and simple answer. Per capita income is a unit to measure average income of an individual derived from the income of a geography, such as a country or state or city. It is calculated by taking a measure of all sources of income of a geography and dividing it by the total population.

According to the latest figures released by Government – Goa leads the country with per capita income of Rs. 1,92,652/-, while Bihar has the lowest with a per capita income of only Rs. 24,681/-. An average Goan earns 6 times more than an average Bihari!

As per latest 2012 figures, Delhi comes in second after Goa with PCI of Rs. 1,75,812 followed by Chandigarh (1,28,634 – 2011) & Haryana (1,09,227).

  • OKAY WTF!? why aren’t the states RANKED according the Highest to LOWSET instead of alphabetic numbers? were they too afraid to make other states look awful?

    • To make it easier to locate data for a specific state. And why can’t you do it yourself by copying the data on an excel sheet if that is what bothers you so much.

  • My. View is that statistic r never proved to be correct infact absurd & complex, Per Capita income to me should be calculated totalling Salaried income + unemployed income + self business income {GroupA)/no.of adullt heads,large business income+doctor income+CA+lawyer+IT+etc(Group B)/no. Of heads.Then the understanding of Per Capita Income of the group of different States are better understood

  • Mr. Anurag, if Bengal is having more than 91 million inhabitants………whose problem is this?

  • If we look at to West Bengal’s Per capita income it is the best compared to all top 5 states as the Bengal has more than 91 million inhabitants compared to all of them… JOY BANGLA JAI HIND

  • I have converted the per capita income figure to US Dollars and am not sure that I have it correctly. Please clarify. If Goa has a per capita income of 192652 how does that translate? Also, is there an index of overall cost of living in Goa to a comparable city in the US?

    • If you talk about Goa only, what it simply means is that average income of an individual living in Goa is 1,92,652/- per year… In dollar terms, that would work out to about USD 3,500. Hope that helps…

    • Per Capita Income is calculated dividing the total income by total population (including children and unemployed). Yes it shows the lower income but it is the standard way to calculate throughout the world

    • The data has been extracted from Government of India press communique. Please see the article, I have also given the link to the original pdf from where the data has come…

  • Ek bat he ki aap jab badi company ki reavnue nikal de to par capital income me kon sa state sabse aage he so please post this data

  • so we are moving ahead even our population increased proportionally to pci, now we are middle lower in the rate of pci according to world bank

  • farzi detail hai..pune se jyada industries to jamshedpur me hai..n in 2008 has d highest per capita income.

  • I have a question. When you measure the per capita income, do you divide by the *total* population, or only the number of people with jobs? It doesn’t make sense to include children and unemployed people, does it? It would give a much lower per capita value, which would not give a good account of how much the average person earns.

  • But the value of the Rupee has fallen enormously [I reckon by 33% to what it was in 2008!],after 2008,when the RBI began printing notes,for the HUGE stimuli for the rich oligarchs.This reportedly, continues and is in the region of about Rs 5 LAKH CRORES per year[there may be variations,as CAG has reported a figure of Rs 70,000 CRORES for the last Fiscal]

  • Thanks 4 your accurate percapita income data as I was in need of knowing that……… I am in X th and we have just completed the topic of percapita income.

  • we are shit. county has been looted by us. so much poverty – economic and social indicators are like Congo. what a mess we have made – and then if someone points out the deficiencies they are termed anit national by home minister!

  • average per capita is right bcoz We are talking about the Whole nation but When We Write just Write per capita not average per capita it is understood that it is average thank u

  • I think tourism plays a major role in Goa having highest PCI. On a lighter note, certain States are not disclosing their income?? Not declaring income is illegal. Isn’t it?? ;)

  • A note to the author, there’s nothing like ‘Average Per Capita’ as the term ‘Per Capita’ means per individual or per person.

  • Well seems it depends on many factors. Number of big cities, towns, villages in the state & also population of state. Seems Goa scores in all he ways!

OOOH…IS IT??
