Excerpt
In India poverty is overwhelmingly a rural phenomena, and poverty research, analysis and policy development have focused largely on the rural poor. However, nearly one-quarter of India?s urban population live below the official poverty line2 and the urban poor face a unique set of challenges. This paper explores some of the key factors linked to poverty in Uttar Pradesh (UP), one of India?s largest states, with a population of 180 million, and one of its poorest. According to recent estimates, an estimated 57 million people in UP live below the official poverty line. While poverty levels are higher in rural areas, urban poverty is still significant. If nearly one in three city dwellers can be assumed to be poor (Table 1), then approximately 10 million people are living below the poverty line in UP?s urban areas.
