Despite high income levels on an average, the state has not managed to provide balanced growth to all its regions
Maharashtra presents the co-existence of both affluence and poverty at high levels. The per capita income in Maharashtra at ₹ 114,392 in 2013-14 stands next only to Haryana among all the major states, while the national per capita income is distinctly lower at ₹ 74,380. On the other hand, the poverty rate in the state at 18% is close to the national average and shows sharp urban-rural disparity. While the urban poverty rate at 9% is lower than the national average by 5 percentage points, the rural poverty rate at 24% is less than the national average by only 1 percentage point. Despite high income levels on an average, the state has not managed to provide balanced growth to all its regions.
