Measures to Remove Poverty- Growth OrientedApproach

Flemish

1. This approach is based on trickle-down effect, that the
effect of economic growth would spread to all sections of
the society.
2. The rapid industrial development and transformation of
agriculture through green revolution would benefit the
underdeveloped and the backward sections of the
community.
• But this approach was not successful because of high
population growth, widening inequality among rich and
poor section and due to inefficient administrative set up.

Flemish
Region
• This is the third approach to solve the poverty problem by providing the basic
amenities to the people.
• India was the first in the world to start the provision of the basic needs
through its public expenditure on social consumption needs like provision of
food grains at subsidised rates, education, health, water supply and
sanitation.
• The Indian government also assisted elderly people who do not have anyone
to take care of them through pensions by National Social Assistance program.
Shortcomings of Poverty Alleviation Programs (PAPs)
Image by: Pinterest.com
Flemish
Region
• The following are the major concerns that prevented successful
implementation of PAPs :
1. Unequal distribution of land and other assets due to which non-poor people
took the advantage of the programs.
2. Insufficient resource allocation as compared to the size of the poverty.
3. Ill-motivated, inadequately trained government officials acted as the
hindrance to provide aid to the poor people because of their corrupted
behaviour.
