No Poverty Cap For Food Allocation, Says Montek
The Planning Commission clarified that it was not going by a set poverty line for the allocation of subsidized food and supported an approach of giving benefits based on various economic factors. The plan panel had drawn flak from activists, including from members of the National Advisory Council (NAC), for its affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that the poverty line for urban areas could be provisionally placed at about Rs. 32 per day. “The allegation is being made that the Planning Commission is trying to understate poverty. This is simply not true,” said Montek Singh Ahluwalia. “The Planning Commission has never taken the view that benefits should be restricted to those below this poverty line,” said Ahluwalia.
