There are at most 326,000 rural families and 125,000 urban families who are considered to live below poverty line (BPL) in India. This is according to India’â„¢s Planning Commission in its tenth five-year plan for 2002-2007. This number is greatly criticized for being a gross understatement of impoverished families in India.
