In case of India, it was 19th century under the patronage of British colonial rule that the middle classes beginning to emerge.

There were two layers of economic system in rural and urban India. In urban area, the middle class was the product of new economy introduced by the British while rural middle class was still based on the land distribution system. It also has been noticed that there were uneven growths in middle class. Under the British rule there was a rise of a middle class in India. Administration, education, business and occupation played a significant role in providing Indians the jobs and in creating a middle class at that time. This book describes the rise of a middle class in colonial India.
