In what respects is the criterion used by the UNDP for measuring development different from the one used by the World Bank? Explain.

 UNDP uses the criteria of Human Development Index (HDI). It gives us a transperant and clear-cut information about the development of the population in that particular area. It measures the development of the people on the following basis:- Life expectancy, Literacy rate, Per Capita Income... While the World Bank uses only Per Capita Income to measure the development of the particular area as it also has many limitations with regard to the HDI such as it doesn't tell us about the life expextancy in that area and it also doesn't show us whether the people are educated in that area or not....
