Urban poor income in AP too low
VIJAYAWADA: The state government will unveil plans to raise the per capita income of urban poor to Rs 10,000 a month. Stating this, municipal administration minister P Narayana said the per capita income of the slum dwellers in AP is much lower than the income of urban poor in neighboring states.
He agreed that urban poor in AP earn around Rs 3,000 per month, which is not sufficient to lead a decent life. It is more than Rs 12,000 in other states. He said this at a review meeting of district-level project directors of Mission for Elimination of Poverty in Municipal Areas (Mama) here.
