Although poverty in the country had diminished during the past two decades, the access to chances still stayed restricted for lots of people.
This declaration has been made by Planning Commission Deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia on Monday (July 11).
At a panel discussion organized by CUTS International, Mr. Ahluwalia stated, "Independent of the method of assessment, poverty in India has decreased in the last two decades. But, this has not translated into equality of access to opportunities. And therefore, inclusion requires a multi-pronged response."
Mr. Montek added even though the majority of states were seeing greater economic development, within them the level of disparity among the haves and have-nots was troublesome.
He also said that there is larger economic expansion crosswise all states.
But, within states, the difference is troublesome.
He emphasized four regions including energy, agriculture, urbanization, water and land, which needed concerted attempts to make growth wide-ranging.
