This chapter studies poverty in Palanpur. The meaning of poverty based on a notion of low annual income is contrasted with that based on a notion of lifestyle and readily observed means. A profile of the poor is developed. The evolution of poverty levels and the profile of poverty over time is documented. Income mobility in the village as a whole, and amongst agricultural labourers in particular, is studied.

Keywords:   agricultural labourers, annual income, income mobility, lifestyle, means, poverty, poverty profile, poverty trends
