Planning Commission (1997) accepted the recommendations of the EG for estimating poverty, four years after the submission of the report, with the modification that in place of the simple average of the weighted commodity indices of CPIIW and CPINM for estimating and updating urban poverty line, only the CPIIW will be used.
For urban areas, the poverty line is obtained by using an average of CPIIW and CPINM for 1994-95 with respect to 1973-74 and the official poverty line for 1973-74.
The poverty lines of 1973-74 are updated by using mainly the CPIIW for urban and CPIAL for rural areas.
