A general controversy always exist regarding the percentage of population below the poverty line in India. The base for poverty line is decided on the caloric requirement of food of a person in a day. A person in rural areas requires 2, 400 calories and in urban areas requires 2, 200 calories in a day. The household should be able to bear this expenditure to remain above the poverty line. However there is argument that along with calories criteria, the amount of protein intake should also be treated as a criterion as it is related to physical energy, mental alertness and resistance to infection.
