Twenty years hence, the 2011 census shows that only 4.6 per cent of India's population has ownership of all four assets - television, computer/laptop, scooter/car and telephone/ mobile phone.
While the limiting asset is computer with only 9.5 per cent ownership, 21 per cent owns a scooter and 63 per cent owns a phone.

How projections go wrong !
The year 1991 was a landmark in India's economic and political history. And by throwing its doors open to the foreign world, it created two myths - the great Indian middle class and the great Indian growth story. But myth was soon busted when the 300 million middle-class figure projected in 1991 actually stood at 30 million. According to the standards set by the Asian Development Bank, members of the middleclass consume on average $2- $20 a day.
Is the vulnerable middle- class who consumes $2 a day better fitted to be called the middle-class? Or the middlemiddle class who spends $4-$10 a day? Or, the upper-middle class who can afford expenditures of $10-$20 a day?
