Income Distribution-Patterns, Trends and Policies

Patterns, Trends and Policies P K Bardhan T N Srinivasan THE Planning Unit of the Indian Statistical Institute held a Seminar on Income Distribution in India on February 25 and 26, 1971. A version summarising the proceedings of the Seminar appeared in the March 13 issue of this journal ("Who Are the Poor?" pp 608-10). In our view this summary does not adequately cover the range of issues discussed as well as some of the conclusions that emerged. In view of the importance of the subject, we thought that it would be useful to present a more comprehensive summary of the discussions based on the chairman's opening and concluding statements as well as the detailed notes of the points math' by individual participants as recorded by the rapporteur of each session.
