Programs Runs in India to Eradicate Poverty

  • Dr. Tanu Varshney Assistant Professor, Department of economics, S.V.PG College, Aligarh


The poverty-stricken approach has evolved over the past 50 years because the complexity of development is increasingly being understood. In the 1950s and 1960s, many people considered large-scale investments in physical capital and infrastructure as an important development tool.
As consciousness grew in the 1970s, physical capital was inadequate and just as important as health and education. The World Development Report 1980 has expressed this concept. Health and education were important not only for their own rights, but also for the income increase of the poor.
In the 1980s there was another shift after the departmental crisis and the global economic slowdown and the opposite experiences of East Asia and Latin America, South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. It was emphasized that improvements in economic management and greater room for maneuver are possible. According to World Development Report 1990; Poverty suggested two strategies: promoting labor-intensive growth through economic opening up and investments in infrastructure and providing basic services to the poor in health and education.
