Draft National Policy for HBW's in India

Keywords:

The Government of India is committed to inclusive growth, where the benefits of development also reach the last person in the remotest village or most inaccessible informal urban habitation of India. Economic development of the country is to be measured not only through the rate of growth of Gross National Product but also by its impact on the growth of per capita income of the lowest income group. Poverty and insecurity haunt a large number of our population. In addition to low income; illiteracy, ill health, gender inequality, and environmental degradation are all aspects of being poor. In order to address the multi dimensional nature of poverty and to reach the human development goals to all, the informal economy, of which home-based workers are an integral part, can not be ignored.
