This paper seeks to explore the possibilities of presenting a method, albeit a crude one, for observing the trends in wealth distribution among urban households. At this stage of the country's economic development, no official 'administrative' statistics would provide a correct picture of the reality regarding wealth distribution. The only method of obtaining such a valid picture is through systematic surveys. However, till such surveys are undertaken, it may be worthwhile to attempt, on the basis of available official statistics, to frame a rough pattern of the distribution of wealth and to indicate broad trends over a period of time. The present study has this modest objective in view. [The first part of this article was published last week.]
