The recently released Household Amenities and Assets Census of 2011 shows the extent of poverty in different spheres in India. Out of the 24.6 crore households in India only 29% have a house with concrete roof, only 32% have access to tapped drinking water and only 47% have a latrine facility within the premises. 49.8% of the households still have to defecate in the open; 49% of the households still use firewood as the fuel for cooking and another 17% use cowdung cake or crop residue. 39% of households do not have any kitchen.

In a family of 5 if per capita income perday is 34, it means the family gets rs 170 per day... and 5100 per month... though it is not sufficient to build assets, it would certainly provide food and bare minimum facilities.
