Poverty in India: A Great Stumbling Block to Development Measurement and Strategies for Poverty Eradication

Tapan Kumar Shandilya (Author) Samir Kumar (Author) Shakeel Ahmad Khan (Author)

The book examines the concerns relating to poverty in India and discusses the importance of poverty alleviation strategies. It showcases the emergence of the Basic Human Needs Approach to Poverty Alleviation, which has revolutionised the concept of poverty itself. Poverty has come to be recognised as a broad social problem of public policy or arising from lack of political will. It throws light on dimensions of poverty in India, its extent and incidence, its causes and micro-finance as an effective tool of poverty alleviation. It delves into the importance of focusing on the rural-urban dichotomy, halting the reverse resource transfer from rural to urban areas and simplifying the criteria and procedures relating to the supply of inputs and finance to the peasants to reduce inequality. It argues that poverty alleviation programmes management has to resolve the conflict between number and quality of programmes and between physical and pecuniary targets.
