STATE OF INDIA'S POOR
The Dialectics of Other India
As a group of 90 Community-Led Organisations and fellows, we have been tracking the situation of the most marginalised communities across India during the Pandemic. The aim of this initiative was to facilitate strengthening of a ground-level social accountability system that has an instrumental role in facilitating and monitoring programmes related to rights, entitlements, relief and recovery of the disadvantaged communities.
Between April 2020 and March 2021, the initiative has generated information across various themes including government schemes, livelihood and access to food, with a focus on the situation of the most marginalised. From April 2021 our priorities have expanded in light of the second wave and we have diversified the information generated.
