Abstract: The geography of location of work in Uttarakhand has been redefined in the last two decades. The new economic geography building in the state is definitely the outcome of more contemporary and dynamic forces prevailing and less of the physical features. The current purlieu of jobs is, increasingly, converging in Terai region and producing new waves that are attracting more labour and capital. The Kumaon Himalayas are been characterised by shrinking population, falling wages and declining productivity for a while now. The difference between two different auras of work was not large in 1980-90s but its growing ever since and now it has been largest in many many years. Geographically people and jobs are not only segregated but also getting concentrating into certain regions. The geographical divide has become more of an economic divide. A layer of rust has started appearing on the traditional enterprises and primary sector in the Kumaon Himalayas. The situation in hills has been more aggravated by hollowing out of labours. The trajectory of Terai region from being invisible on map to be endowed with the carpet of industrialisation is remarkable. The resulting long term forces have been reflected in economic map, contributing to the great divergence of distinct geography and socioeconomic characteristics. The study attempts to understand the economic rationale for spatial concentration of economic activities in different geographical scales so as to holistically understand the poverty traps in geographically isolated region and the new emerging cities.
