The major reasons for poverty in the country are:
1. The low level of economic development under British colonial rule. The policies of the colonial government ruined traditional handicrafts and discouraged the development of industries like textiles.
2. The spread of the Green Revolution created many job opportunities for the people of the country, yet they were not sufficient in comparison to the number of job seekers.
3. Unequal distribution of land and resources is another important factor for poverty in India.
4. In order to fulfill social obligations and religious ceremonies the poor end up spending a lot which results in poverty.
5. Inequality in the income of the people is also a major reason for poverty.Answered by Vishal kumar | 2 years ago
