Solution :-

The Economic Survey of 2017-18 shows that although poverty has declined in the country, the number of poor still remains to be very high. The poverty ratio of 1993-94 for both rural and urban areas together was at 45% and the ratio for the year 2011-12 has declined down to 22%. However, the topic of concern still remains that there has not been any massive decline in the number of poor living in the country. From 404 million poor population in both rural and urban areas together in 1993-94. The poor population till 2011-12 remains to be 270 million for both rural and urban areas. The survey clearly tells that the concerned authorities must take some serious steps in order to make India a country free of poverty.
