There has been a substantial decline in the poverty ratios in India from about 55 percent in 1973 to 36 percent in 1993. The proportion of people below poverty line further came down to about 26 percent in 2000. Although the percentage of people living in poverty declined from 1973-1993, the number of poor remained stable around 320 million for a fairly long period.
