Because if a person will not get the basic necessities such as food, clothes and shelter then he may not be able to survive and if he survives he will continue living in poverty because he will not be able to work as he does not have enough energy to work. 

So, poverty is not the problem of one country or one state it is their in whole world but the thing that matters is how government is taking efforts to improve the conditions. 

                     Every state government has initiated different schemes to help BPL people and so does the government of Kerala also takes some of the major steps to help BPL people and they have also successfully achieve their targets. 

BPL people mostly live in rural areas and most of them are from scheduled tribes and castes. 

                   As per the record, in 2011-12 Kerala was having 11.3% of BPL population in the state. 

But since Kerala is having highest percentage of literate population government has taken major steps to educate BPL people and not only this government has helped in health care, pension schemes, public distribution system and many such schemes to help BPL people. 

And by initiating such schemes government has successfully decline the rate of percentage of BPL people in state. 

                 Every government has some parameters to determine BPL families and it may differ from state to state. 

Kerala government has set seven parameters to determine BPL families and they are as follows:

  1. Only one room with “kacha” walls and “kacha” roof.
  2. No adult member between the ages of 16 and 59.
  3. Female headed house with no adult male member between age 16 and 59.
  4. SC/ST households.
  5. No literate member above age 25.
  6. Landless member and they should earn some money by doing casual labour work.

According to data of 2011-12 , the total population of kerala is 76.99 lakhs and out of which 63.19 lakhs lives in rural areas and out of this rural population 19.16 lakhs people are living in poverty.  

But regardless of all this numbers government of kerala has taken such initiating steps that they are able to eradicate poverty fully from their state and Kerala has become the first poverty-free state.
