'Prosperous' British India, more completely titled Prosperous' British India: A Revelation from Official Records, was a book published in 1901 by British author William Digby that described the economic conditions prevailing in British India in the latter half of the nineteenth century under British rule.

The book also used government statistics to demonstrate that the death-toll and frequency of catastrophic economic disasters in India, such as famines, was
