Abstract

This study raises some relevant issues and examines them from an economic perspective. To begin with, it would examine how did the Indian approach, official in particular, to defining and measuring poverty originate and evolve over time? What are the major issues regarding the nutritional basis for poverty measurement highlighted in academic and policy debates in India? How valid are these debates in terms of their methodological basis and data relevance? What are the issues relevant today? What is the possible solution? [Planning Commission].
