    India is the developing country with the second largest population in the world after China. It also has a very high population density that is the number of people living per square feet of area is very high here. Also, the literacy rate here is not something very astonishing and there are still many superstitions in this land of culture and diversity. One of the major problems encountered by the citizens of India is Poverty and this has certain relevant causes:

    1. POPULATION: The ever-increasing population has been the greatest challenge to curb poverty here, population is increasing with each passing day, here it is often found that there are families with a lot of members with no earning members among them this causes a havoc crisis.

    2. EDUCATION: Lack of education also stands as a major cause; education is the backbone for every country and it should not only be theoretical but must include practical teaching and learning.

    3. LACK OF JOBS: India is a developing country with not much job opportunities, workers are over exploited with more work and less payment it is also evident that we witness gender discrimination at many work places. India is still majorly dependent on its primary agricultural sector and yet is not completely able to make it out to the secondary or tertiary sectors.
