So it's about 375x100 days free rations on BPL card. That calculates to INR 37,500 (USD 1.37 per day). This is entirely different from calculating poverty.

Below is a document released in 2020, and according to that, no poverty estimates have been released after 2013, based on the Tendulkar poverty line, on poverty data related to 2011-12.

After that, another committee recommended revision to INR 47 and INR 32 for Urban and Rural from INR 32 and INR 26, but no action was taken by the Indian government.

I am still unable to find the source that translates your poverty line to PKR 400,000 p.a.
In all these old reports you can see Haryana too ..but today pkr 400000/- is considered as below poverty line family ,for Karnataka it's around 300000/ - for Telangana it's around 440000/- , different for different states..

Why the heck has this thread been derailed by Indian members, bringing India into every thread, also with selected figures of one or two states.


Good thing is that poverty has reduced. Despite Indian propaganda of Pakistan being collapsing and selling Buffalos to keep the economy floated.

I am interested in Poverty in UP, which has exact same population as Pakistan.
