According to NITI Aayog, approximately 135 million individuals in India have transitioned out of multidimensional poverty within a span of five years. This has resulted in a reduction of the poverty rate in the country from 24.8% to 14.9% between 2015-16 and 2019-21. These positive changes can be attributed to advancements in nutrition, increased years of schooling, improved sanitation, and the availability of subsidized cooking fuel.

Among the states, Uttar Pradesh exhibited the most significant decline in the number of individuals living in poverty, with a decrease of 34.3%.
