Match the following

Column I Column II
(a) Survey to calculate poverty lines (i) Agricultural labor
(b) Social Vulnerable group (ii) SGSY
(c) Economically vulnerable group (iii) NSSO
(d) Poorest of the poor (iv) Scheduled caste
(e) Bank credit subsidy to the poor (v) Women and children


(a) (a) – (i), (b) – (iii), (c) – (ii), (d) – (v), (e) – (iv) 

(b) (a) – (ii), (b) – (iv), (c) – (i), (d) – (v), (e) – (iii) 

(c) (a) – (iii), (b) – (iv), (c) – (i), (d) – (v), (e) – (ii) 

(d) (a) – (i), (b) – (ii), (c) – (iii), (d) – (v), (e) – (iv)



Let’s check all the options:

  • (a) Survey to calculate poverty lines matches with (iii) NSSO -  Surveys are carried out by NSSO to estimate poverty line periodically.

  • (b) Social Vulnerable group matches with (iv) Scheduled caste - Vulnerability is determined by the options available to different communities for finding an alternative living in terms of assets, education, health, and job opportunities. People belonging to SC  are excluded from equal opportunities.

  • (c) Economically vulnerable group matches with (i) Agricultural labor - Small farmers need money to buy agricultural inputs like seeds, fertilizer, pesticides, etc. Since poor people hardly have any savings, they borrow. Unable to repay because of poverty, they become victims of indebtedness.

  • (d) Poorest of the poor matches with (v) Women and children-  Women, elderly people, and female infants are denied equal access to resources available to the family.

  • (e) Bank credit subsidy to the poor matches with (ii) SGSY-  Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY) was launched in 1999. The program aims at bringing the assisted poor families above the poverty line by organizing them into self-help groups through a mix of bank credit and government subsidy.

So,  the correct answer is (c) -   (a) – (iii), (b) – (iv), (c) – (i), (d) – (v), (e) – (ii)
