Delhi: 1st state to top Rs.3L per capita income

In 2015-16, Delhi's per capita income crossed Goa's to become the highest in the country. The 2016-17 figures show that it grew 11% in a year to cross Rs.3 lakh a year (over Rs.25,000 per month) -a first for an Indian state. An average person in Delhi now earns over Rs.3 lakh a year, three times the national average. This is because Delhi's GDP has consistently grown faster than India's (8.8% as against country's 7.1% in 2016-17).
