Thank you for your comment. In the paper I refer to, we provide unbiased statistics describing how poverty in India has changed over time, and find that religious and social communities have seen big improvements associated with economic growth. While this does not describe conditions in every location, it does indicate that, on average, growth has been good for many marginalized communities in the country. Although the fact remains that the country still has a very long way to go with regards to poverty reduction – however, in some aspects it might be headed in the right direction.
