Q.5:- The three dimensional attack on poverty adopted by the government has not succeeded in poverty alleviation in India. Comment.

 

Answer

The three dimensional approach of economic growth, employment generation and alleviating poverty could not achieve the desired result. Although there has been a reduction in the percentage of absolute poor in some of the states but still the poor people lack basic amenities, literacy, and nourishment. This is because of



1. Unequal distribution of land and other assets among rich and poor farmers.

2. Improper implementation of poverty alleviation programmes by ill-motivated and inadequately trained bureaucrats further worsened the situation.

3. Corruption along with the inclination towards interest of elites led to an inefficient and misallocation of scarce resources.
