Utilising unit-level data from the India Human Development Surveys, income inequalities in India and in 17 major states for 2004–05 and 2011–12 are estimated. Income inequality was generally high and was rising during the years, notwithstanding some declines in a few states. It is observed that income inequalities among Indians are unlikely to be narrowed down on their own from trickledown effect of income growth.
