Multidimensional poverty-deficiency of essential things for basic life below national average is known as poverty.The poverty in different area is known as multidimensional poverty.
Before 2010:-Before 2010 income of the person were considered as a base of determining poverty.But this way was less correct because a person have income according to gov average and that person have no house for living , their children have no access to school ,they suffer poor health etc.
Thus introducing Multidimensional poverty index is nice step of government and assessment will help government to formulate policy to improve the situation of and their standard of living.
