POVERTY REDUCTION STRATEGY TN

While the general base

While the general base for many schemes is the state poverty share, this is subject to an adjustment factor proposed by the Lakdawala Committee till the late 1990s, which ensured that the reduction in the anti poverty programme allocation of specific states did not fall by more than 15 percent from the previous allocation formula. The adjusted formulae is now used for SGSY, SGRY and IAY (the latter with an additional factor of housing shortage), and for targeted public distribution system (TPDS), both urban and rural poverty are taken in to account. The adjusted shares are given in Table 6.8. Table 6.8: Core Funding Shares by States for Rural Anti-poverty Programmes State Task Force 93-94 Expert Group 93-94 Adjusted Shares Andhra Pradesh 6.635 3.257 5.64 Assam 1.513 3.866 3.222 Bihar 19.265 18.476 18.476 Gujarat 2.11 2.547 2.123 Haryana 0.721 1.498 1.249 Himachal Pradesh 0.272 0.631 0.526 Jammu &Kashmir 0.191 0.781 0.651 Karnataka 5.011 3.934 4.259 Kerala 1.094 2.293 1.911 Madhya Pradesh 11.018 8.859 9.365 Maharashtra 9.905 7.922 8.419 Orissa 7.59 5.774 6.451 Punjab 0.262 0.728 0.607 Rajasthan 2.665 3.88 3234 Tamil Nadu 5.546 4.987 4.987 Uttar Pradesh 20.365 20.333 20.333 West Bengal 5.479 8.601 7.169 NE and UTs 0.235 1.147 0.967 Source: Source: Saxena (2006); Rajan (2004) for social pensions. Note: NE: Northeastern States; UTs: Union Territories. A number of central and centrally sponsored schemes are being administered by state and district level authorities covering income and employment schemes as well as health and education services. Table 6.9 gives, as an illustration, the share of funds allocated by different tiers of government and spent by different spending authorities/entities for one district of Tamil Nadu (Villupuram). It shows that state funds contribute about 45 percent of total funds allocated, and taluk (block) and village level authorities spend relatively the larger share of expenditure. 142

6.5 Reaching Households and Individuals: Micro Level Policies While macro policies relate to growth of output, employment, inflation, and budgetary allocation to areas such as health, education, and other poverty related interventions, micro policies aim at individually targeted interventions. Two areas for micro interventions relate to micro credit and micro insurance.
