Poverty Alleviation Programs In India: A Study
AbstractIndia is a haven to 22% of the world’s poor. Such a high incidence of poverty is a matter of apprehension, in view of the fact that poverty eradication has been one of the major objectives of the development process. Really, poverty is a global dialog. Poverty eradication is considered integral to humanity’s mission for sustainable development. Thus, reduction of poverty in India is vital for the attainment of international goals. The philosophy underlying the poverty alleviation programs is to tackle the rural poverty by endowing the poor with productive assets and training for raising their skills so that they are assured of a regular stream of employment and income in raising themselves above the poverty line. This paper discusses various poverty alleviation programs and focuses on programs like—Rural Landless Employment Guarantee Program (RLEGP), National Rural Employment Program (NREP), Jawar Rozgar Yojana (JRY), and Integrated Rural Development Program (IRDP).
