Anil Madhav Dave, Environment Minister told the Parliament that it will take more than 30 years to  remove poverty in the country. India is far behind the   Sustainable Development Goals  (SDGs) prescibed by the  U.N.

If the New Economic Policy continues, it will take much more years to reach the goal or never reach it. Even after seven decades of freedom, India is lgagging  behind even though the National wealth has increased.

The wealth has been usurped by the rich and the poor became poorer.
