What is the main cause of poverty in India? 


ANSWER

All of these


SOLUTION
The estimated population of India is 300 million people. More than 70 percent of the population lives in the rural areas where access to resources and quality education is hard. Therefore, the majority of the population fail to acquire the necessary skills for development. Overpopulation in India has led to high unemployment rates and has inhibited the provision of quality public services. The caste system in India has also contributed to the increase in poverty due to separation of people into thousands of groups.
