India Has Amazingly Taken 271 Million People Out Of Poverty In Just Last 10 Years!

India has reduced its Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) by almost half between 2005-06 and 2015-16, according to MPI 2018 released by the the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

MPI is an index that looks beyond income poverty, and takes into account acute shortage in health, education as well as living standards. The MPI index was reduced from 54.7 percent to 27.5 percent, the Indian Express reported.
