Almost 30% of people in India live under the poverty line. They survive on less than 1$ a day. These people live in unsanitary conditions. Children can’t afford going to school, but if they try, they drop off after a year. Poor health, lack of education, crime and more poverty keeps on increasing in India. High population is one of the biggest issues that causes poverty. People get paid less, especially if they have no education. The employers are not concerned about the employees well-being, they only want to pay less and get more profit. Unskilled workers have no other option but to work for less money, since there is no minimum wage standards. It is expected that population in India will reach 1.5 billion by 2026 and then India will be the largest nation in the world. But India‚Äôs economy is not growing as fast. For this population, near about 20 million new jobs would be required. Caste system and unequal distribution of income and resources is another reason of poverty in India.
