India is one of the fastest growing large economies in the world. It ranks third in terms of GDP Purchasing Power Parity. Its per capita income, however, remains one of the lowest among the developing countries. Low per capita income and widespread poverty in the country are attributed, among other factors, to low level of urbanisation, i.e. only about 30 per cent. Further, the pace of urbanisation in India has been much slower compared to most of the developing regions, such as Latin America and South-east Asia.
