Between 1920 and 1929, the disposable income of the population rose 9%, while the top 1% enjoyed a massive 75% increase.

Population growth in India during the twentieth century can be chartered and classified into four distinct phases as follows: * 1901 - 1921: Stagnant population * 1921 - 1951: Steady growth * 1951 - 1981: Rapid high growth * 1981 - 2001: High growth with definite slowing down In absolute terms, the population of India increased by a whopping 180.6 million during the decade 1991 - 2001. Although the net addition in population during each decade has increased consistently, the change in net addition has shown a steady declining trend over the decades starting from 1961. While 27.9 million more people were added between the decade 1981 - 1991 than between 1971 - 1981, this number decline to 17.6 million for the decades between 1981 - 1991 and 1991 - 2001.
