This year's Nobel Prize winner for Economics, Angus Deaton, based much of his path breaking work on improving the way poverty is measured in India. But in an exclusive interview to NDTV, Mr Deaton said that politics of measuring poverty and growth in India make it impossible to gauge the full extent of either. While he believes that the country has come a long way in reducing the numbers of poor, its growth figures, he said, are exaggerated.
