This volume discusses the extent, location, and severity of chronic poverty in India and suggests poverty reduction policies from that perspective. Based on new research, the contributors analyze both original and secondary data to demonstrate that a significant proportion of India’s population is chronically poor. By weaving together qualitative and quantitative data, the book provides an important understanding of the major causes and consequences of chronic poverty. Among the topics discussed are: The factors that help poor households to escape or alleviate poverty The condition of casual agricultural labourers, which is the largest group characterised by chronic poverty The effect of involuntary displacement and relocation on marginal groups, such as forest dwellers, that are chronically poor The impact on intrahousehold relationships in conditions of chronic poverty-e.g., in urban slums The relationship between malnutrition and chronic poverty The opportunities afforded by technology for empowerment of the poor and the underprivileged Possible ways and means to strengthen existing safety nets for the vulnerable section of India’s population
