Brief overview on poverty that why poverty programs are failed in India?

After analyzing all the poverty reduction programs and analyzing the actual poverty scenario we reach to the conclusion thatI. Planning process is faulty (with reference to PAP’s): ➢ Identifying the ‘poor’ ➢ Defining ‘poor’ ➢ Processing of the identification involves too many stages.- lack of technology up gradation. ➢ The program focuses on benefitting a small group of the people in a big way. (asset creation) ➢ Ideally the programs should be broader based. (benefitting the large number of people) ➢ Disjointed programs- not integrated. (Beneficiaries overlap, the same rural areas benefited from served programs.) II. Implementation of programs: ➢ Corrupt officials/ staffs. ➢ Lack of involvement. ➢ Local politics. (selection of beneficiaries) ➢ Improper follow up of program/ review or revision is practically none existed. III. Lack of support from the credit and marketing system: ➢ Role of local money lenders and banks. ➢ Inability to sustain income generation from the asset credited. If we see in favor of the government, government is doing many poverty reduction programs and we can say it has already started many programs but main loop holes are implementation of programs, awareness of the programs etc. people don’t know the poverty reduction programs are going on, and people are not ready to know about the programs because majority of the people are illiterate. People are illiterate that’s why they are not getting loans or initial capital for self-employment, so poor become more poor and richer become richer. For resolving this problem government has to try to reach to the people and make them aware about the different programs.
