Author - Alok Srivastava | Published - 2018

In developing economies, poverty and inequality are closely interlinked. Going by different estimates, the population below poverty line is estimated to be more than half of the population of India. Unavailability or inaccessibility of public services and challenges in making e-governance initiatives reach the poor population is a major cause for their continuing in poverty. The paper concludes with workable measures to improve the governance towards reducing inequality and poverty.
