Problems of Poverty Notes by Vibha Maam

Meaning of Poverty

      Poverty is a situation in which a person is unable to fulfill their basic needs like food, clothes and shelter.

      Poor people are in  this situation in which they are ill- treated at almost every place in farms, factories, government-offices, hospitals, railway stations, etc.

Mass Poverty

       When a large section of the people in an economy are deprived of these basic necessities that economy is said to be in mass poverty.

Poverty Line

       Poverty line is a line which indicates the level of purchasing power required to satisfy the minimum need of a person.

Two methods of estimating the poverty line

i) Consumption Method

        Average calorie requirement in India :- Per person 2400 calories per day in rural areas per person 2104 calories per day in urban areas

ii) Income Method:-according to planning commission report (2020)

  • Current poverty line is fixed at Rs1,059.42 per month in rural areas and Rs1,286  per month in urban areas.
  • Poverty lines can differ from state to state.
  • The poverty line is estimated periodically, normally every 5 years by conducting a sample survey.
  • These surveys are carried out by the National Sample Survey Organization (NSSO).

The International Poverty Line 

       World Bank uses a uniform standard for measuring global poverty line:- Minimum availability of the equivalent of $1.90 per person per day.

Vulnerable Groups 

Poverty and occupation both are co-related.

  • In rural areas – Peasants, casual labourers, physically challenged.
  • In urban areas – Casual workers, unemployed, daily wage earners, domestic servants, rickshaw pullers,
  • Social groups vulnerable – Schedule caste, schedule tribe, female infants, women, elderly people.

Inter-State Disparities

        The Poorest States:- Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand.

        The proportion of poor people is not the same in every state. but some states like Kerala, Jammu and Kashmir, Andhra- Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Punjab and Haryana have succeeded in reducing poverty.

  • Punjab Haryana have reduced poverty through agriculture development
