The three dimensional attack on poverty adopted by the government has not succeded in poverty alleviation in India.Comment.


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 poverty in some of the states, the poor people lack basic amenities, literacy and nourishment. 

This is because of: 

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

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

  • Corruption along with inclination towards interest of elites led to an efficient and misallocation of scarce resources.
