Do you think urban poverty is a spillover of rural poverty? Give reasons for your answer.

Yes, urban poverty is a spillover of rural poverty to a large extent in India. This is due to the fact that people residing in rural areas have a tendency to migrate to urban areas to search employment opportunities. But, most of those people are not educated and skilled enough to find the jobs above the level of their subsistence only. This results in increase in urban population below poverty line.
