THE GREAT INDIAN DICHOTOMY

“The official poverty lines (`32 per person per day in urban areas and `26 per person per day in rural areas, at June 2011 prices) ‘ensure the adequacy of actual private expenditure per capita near the poverty lines on food, education and health’. As quoted from the Tendulkar Committee Report (2009).”
