IGSSS managed the Homeless Citizens Resource Centres (HCRCs) in Central and New Delhi, and North Delhi and was responsible for the survey of Urban Poverty Homelessness in Indiaand the distribution of homeless cards in these areas. According to a recent Indian government committee constituted to estimate poverty, nearly 38% of India’s population (380 million) is poor. This report is based on new methodology and the figure is 10% higher than the present poverty estimate of 28.5%.


Our vision is of a world where informed, empowered citizens participate in the process of deepening democracy with tolerance towards its large numbers and diversity. Since 1972 poverty has been defined on basis of the money required to buy food worth 2100 calories in urban areas and 2400 calories in rural areas. The term poverty is a relative concept. It is very difficult to draw a demarcation line between affluence and poverty. Challenges of urban poverty in India are intimately tied with challenges of the country’s fast development. Rural poverty is one thing, but urban poverty in India added a whole new breed of revolting aspects to it: diseases, violence (more than at the countryside), disintegration of communities and the social fabric.
