Per capita income in India has doubled between 2004-05 and 2010-11 to touch Rs 54,835 per annum. The PCI figure gives a fair idea of the standard of living of the people. India's per capita income in 2009-10 was Rs 46,492.

Per capita income is calculated by evenly dividing the national income among the country's population.

The size of Indian economy at current prices is projected to rise to Rs 72,56,571 crore at the end of the 2011, up 18.3 per cent from Rs 61,33,230 crore in FY 2010.

The provisional data for 2010-11 from a few states including Goa, West Bengal, Gujarat are yet to be released.

The details of State-wise per capita income (net state domestic product at factor cost) at current prices, as compiled and provided by the Directorates of Economics & Statistics of the States, are given in the following pages.

and people say sikhs are opressed!

IMO those would be the sikhs living outside india.

those in India are simply getting on with their lives whether its making dosh, getting lashed on booze courtesy of their local MLA/State Sabha/SGPC candidates, banging their heads at the doors of religious cults or whatever else they get up to.

Lol, why are people allowed to bash sikhs and punjabis on here?

The GDP per capita of Punjabis is a lot lower than Libya and many other arab countries. But they are allowed to rise up for freedom where as Sikhs should just shut up and be thankful for not being the poorest in India? Lol.

Maybe if Panjab had oil/underground fresh water/natural resources etc the international community will allow, and give support for Panjabis to rise up. At the moment, there is no benefit for anyone outside of Panjab to support sikhs/panjabis revolting.

Looking at current examples worldwide, do you really believe that there will be any improvement to the lives of Panjabis if they rise up or gain independence??

I fully support Sikhs sorting themselves economically. A poor people have never won freedom. That doesnt mean Sikhs need to change their politics or to become card carrying Congress/BJP lovers who worship Hindustan.

If Punjab were to become independent it would need to take over large parts of North West India to survive. Seeing as the govt in East Punjab cant even look after it's own people there isnt much chance of that happening.

Exactly HSD.

An independent Pb as it is, with its current borders - or even the borders before the language divisions were made a few decades ago, is economic and political suicide for the state.

not to mention that Panjabis may need to get a visa to go to places like Simla for their honeymoons! :(

They'll never know unless they try. I think we've tried living under the Indian system for over 60 years so why not try and become independent. Are the southern Sudanese more deserving off freedom than Sikhs?

At present Asking Rural sikh farmers of punjab to revolt is like asking a man to shoot in his own foot.When People of Punjab

are reaping the fruits of sky rocketed Land prices then why will they revolt?

No one has said start a revolt. Just bare in mind that licking hindu backsides wont necessarily save your skins either.

Bare in mind that wealth is pointless if you dont have the infrastructure to go with it. Like modern roads for modern posh cars, modern banks to store savings, institutions to safeguard art, culture, environment etc. It's a bit more complicated than more money = more happiness.

The lowest and most evil people can have money. The situation in Punjab is still very bad.

Punjab used to be #3 in terms of education, but now it doesn't even rank. The government smuggles feem and other drugs/substances into Punjab.

The only way the problem will be fixed is if a strong honest individual becomes a CM or if a another Sikh revolution takes place to end corruption, drugs, poverty and the hindu government crusade against Sikhi in Punjab.
