The Planning Commission has told the Supreme Court that poverty line for urban and rural areas in India could be provisionally placed at Rs. 965 per capita per month and Rs. 781 per capita per month respectively. This would mean those earning over Rs. 32 a day in urban areas and over Rs. 25 a day in rural India will no longer be getting Below Poverty Line (BPL) benefits.
