India’s poor question ‘poverty line’ policy

As Indian government seeks to halve number of people below the poverty line, some question the benefit of being above.

The United Nations says that one third of the world’s extreme poor – people who earn less than $1 a day – live in India.

The government has been trying to halve the number of people living in abject poverty.

But as Al Jazeera’s Nidhi Dutt reports, living above the poverty line does not always mean a better life.
