Six percent Indians living in poverty in America


An estimated six and a half percent of the 42 lakh people of Indian origin living in the US are living below the poverty line. Their condition is worsened due to Corona epidemic. This is revealed in the study.

The study has been conducted by researchers from Johns Hopkins University's Paul Nietz School of Advanced International Studies, Devesh Kapoor and Jashnab BJP.

The results of this study on poverty in the Indian-American population were released during the India Spora Conference on Thursday. Kapoor said that Bengali and Punjabi language is the highest poverty among Indian American people.

One-third of these are not part of the labor force. While about 20 percent do not even have US citizenship. According to Kapoor, the study reveals a wide state of poverty in the Indian community. India Spora founder MR Goswami said,

We want to draw attention to the condition of the most disadvantaged Indian Americans. Considering the impact of the epidemic, this is the right time to create awareness about poverty among the well-to-do Indian community.
