Do you think that present methodology of poverty estimation is appropriate?
No, according to me the present methodology of poverty determination is not appropriate because the present poverty estimation techniques are based on the minimum sustenance standards. The human life is far more valuable and complicated than to be weighed in the light of mere sustenance. So, the appropriation should also take into consideration important human development features like education, job security, health care etc.
