New Delhi: The country's per-capita monthly income is estimated to have risen by 6.8 per cent to Rs 11,254 during 2019-20, government data on national income showed on Tuesday.

In 2018-19, the monthly per-capita income had stood at Rs 10,534.

The per-capita income is a crude indicator of the prosperity of a country.
