Poverty In India
Poverty in India is widespread, with the nation estimated to have a third of the world's poor. According to a 2011 poverty Development Goals Report, as many as 320 million people in India and China are expected to come out of extreme poverty in the next four years, with India's poverty rate projected to drop from 51% in 1990 to about 22% in 2015.The report also indicates that in Southern Asia, only India is on track to cut poverty by half by the 2015 target date.Defining the poverty line is itself a subjective matter, and many feel that it should be raised further. Indian journalist Ravi S Jha suggests measuring poverty by segregating India's poor in different groups; those living in abject poverty, those who are vulnerable to poverty and those who are lifted out of poverty through government welfare. The urban areas where India’s middle and upper classes make their living have seen the greatest degree of economic growth, while the rural areas have lagged further behind. Since 1991, India has undergone a great deal of liberalization internally and externally, but its benefits have mostly gone to the middle and upper classes.

We have toimplement voters' right to reject candidates straight away: Election Commission
 Election Commission on Friday said it would straight away implement the Supreme Court judgment directing it to provide a "None of the Above" button on electronic voting machines (EVMs). The button can be pressed by a voter to reject all the candidates in a poll in case he finds them unsuitable."The EC welcomes the Supreme Court order, which has upheld its long-pending proposal in this regard. It will help maintain the secrecy of ballot for those who want to record a negative/neutral vote on the EVM," a senior EC functionary told TOI. The functionary added that the 'None of the Above' (NOTA) option will be displayed on EVMs in all future elections, the first being the assembly polls to five states due in November."In accordance with the order of the Supreme Court, 'NOTA' shall be printed in a separate panel on the ballot paper below the name of the last contesting candidate. This ballot paper shall be affixed on the ballot unit of the EVM. If the voter presses the button next to NOTA, his desire not to vote for any of the candidates in the fray will get recorded in the EVM in secrecy," the EC said in a press release on Friday.
