Explaining poverty in India

Explaining poverty in India

Margin 17(2): 47-59

It is argued that the interconnections between poverty and unemployment are not properly understood and that a development strategy which leans heavily on increasing employment in the crop output sector may secure full employment but fail to solve the problem of poverty in India. Various studies are reviewed for this purpose. The incidence of unemployment was found to be greater among landless and marginal farmers, declining successively with increase in size of land holdings.
