Due to Poverty people can not access social tools like education and health requirements.
The direct consequences taking place because of poverty are hunger, malnutrition and susceptibility to diseases which are major problems across the world.
Poverty should be decreased by taking some major steps like control in the growth rate of population by creating awareness about birth control, by increasing employment by encouraging self-employment schemes, By providing free high school education and functioning health care centres to the people living in rural areas.
Poverty is a global phenomenon affecting every country.
In India, as per 2014 reports, monthly per capita consumption expenditure in rural areas are 972 INR per person and in urban areas it is 1407 INR per person.
This statistic is being accepted as the poverty line of the country.
Overpopulation and underdevelopment in the country is the main cause for poverty.
The birth rate in India is very high and the former has taken the measure of the ‘one child policy’ to change the situation, but the latter has not made any effort yet.
Current statistics prove that over half the World’s populations i.e.
about 3 billion people, are forcefully living in less than 2.5 dollars per day.
