Well-being, Inequality, Poverty and Pathways Out of Poverty in India

This paper first makes a comprehensive assessment of the performance of states in the post-reform period in terms of growth as well as reduction of income poverty and multiple deprivations. It then investigates whether there is any systematic relationship between growth and poverty and also between growth and inequality for the period 1993-94--2011-12. This analysis helps in understanding the proximate and structural factors underlying poverty and inequality. Based on the empirical analysis and review of approaches adopted by some of the Asian countries which have experienced a rapid reduction in poverty, the paper discusses pathways for India to hasten the process of poverty reduction.
