Intra-Regional Disparities, Inequality and Poverty in Uttar Pradesh

Uttar Pradesh has suffered from regional disparities and inequality and even six decades after independence, some of the regions of this state are very backward and the abode of the largest proportion of poor in the country. The challenges raised by intra-regional disparities and their compounding implications on living conditions and governance are enormous. This study identifies the dimensions of intra-regional disparities, inequality and deprivation in poor households of the state. Its basic objective is to examine whether micro-level disparities and deprivations are much wider and more alarming than at the aggregate level and whether region-specific, district-level planning needs to address these issues on a priority basis.
