Karnataka State is situated in the Southern part of India, it lies between the latitudes 11.31degrees and 18.45degrees North and the longitudes 74.12degrees and 78.40degrees East on the western part of the Deccan Plateau. The state covers a total area of 1, 91,791 Sq km, accounting for 5.83 per cent of the total geographical area of the country. The state is bounded by Maharashtra and Goa states in the north and northwest by the Arabian Sea in the west by Kerala and Tamil Nadu states in the south and by Andhra Pradesh on the east. The overall literacy rate of Karnataka state is 67.04 per cent, which is above the all-Indian average of 64.8 per cent. Bangalore Urban district has highest literacy rate of 83.91 per cent followed by Dakshina Kannada 83.47, Udupi 79.87, Kodagu 78.17, Uttar Kannada 76.59, Shimoga 74.86 and Chikmagalur 72.63 per cent. While Raichur and Gulbarga have lowest literacy rate of 49.54 and 50.65 respectively. The Per Capita GDP of 2001-02 again Bangalore Urban district ensuring highest income of Rs. 24, 774 followed by Dakshina Kannada, Kodagu, Bangalore Rural accounted Rs. 20,682, 18,838 and 17,144 respectively. These districts were also above the state average of Rs. 13,057. While on the other hand districts such as Bidar, Bijapur, Tumkur and Kolar have lowest income of Rs 7,654, 9092, 9,408 and 9,619 respectively. The two poorest districts are Bidar and Gulbarga is adjacent to the two richest districts of Bangalore Urban and Dakshina Kannada. It is surprising that prosperity did not spread to the neighboring districts from Bangalore Urban and Dakshina Kannada.
