Poverty refers to a condition where a person is unable to meet even the basic needs of life. The minimum basic requirement is food, clothing, housing, education, health services, transport, communication, etc. According to the survey conducted in 2011-2012 (planning commission). In India, in 2011-2012, the proportion of people living below the poverty line is calculated to be 25.07% in rural areas, 13.7% in urban areas and 21.9% in the country as a whole. The Human Development Report defines poverty as the denial of opportunities “to live long, healthy, creative lives and to enjoy a decent standard of living with freedom, dignity, self-respect and respect for others. Poverty remains constant at about 30 percent of the population in India's provinces. The appearance of rural poverty has recently decreased somewhat due to the migration from the countryside to the big city for a very long time, but in fact the situation is alarming. Poverty is an economic condition in which people lack or lack certain goods necessary for human life, such as cash and material goods. Thus, need is a multifaceted idea that includes economic, social and political components. India's development model has certainly benefited financial experts, but we are still bombarded when we see that nearly 213 million Indians are constantly hungry. Modern developments and ever-increasing swelling do not pay for them. This requires addressing the causes of rural poverty and the anti-aid agenda and why India remains a helpless nation.
