The present study analyzed the dynamics of the share of different sectors of the economy, sector-wise growth rates and trends in per capita income and the income disparity at the national and state level for the period 1980–81 to 2014–15. The study is based on the secondary data collected from published sources and websites. The 14 agriculture dominating states were selected for the study. The findings of the study revealed that at the national level the percentage share of primary sector in GDP declined from 32.66 to 13.24 percent, secondary and tertiary sector increased from 34.55 to 35.26 percent and from 32.79 to 51.49 percent respectively during TE 2014–15 over TE 1982–83 at constant prices. The state-wise analysis followed the same trend but at different rates. Punjab state has the highest per capita income during the eighties and nineties but Haryana, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Karnataka have higher per capita income than Punjab during TE 2014–15. Over time C.V. of per capita income increased from 32.02 percent during the eighties to 41.82 percent during the period 2000–01 to 2014–15 indicating an increasing disparity in per capita income across different states of India.
