Non-farm Diversification, Inequality and Mobility in Palanpur

This paper is based on a programme of work in Palanpur, a village based in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh. There are now seven surveys of the village, one for every decade since independence. This paper draws upon several working papers and publications which have come out of the study in recent years and we are very grateful to Nicholas Stern, Jean Drèze, Ruth Kattumuri and Dipa Sinha for guidance, advice, and support. We are also grateful to all the researchers in Delhi and London for their contribution to various aspects of analysis of the data. The work is supported by a grant from the Department for International Development, UK to whom we are very grateful.
