This book offers a comprehensive action plan for complete and permanent eradication of poverty. It suggests only evolutionary changes, not any drastic coercive measures, such as nationalization. The Government will initiate the process but will not have a major role in its implementation.
The major objectives of the plan include
a) self-employment or jobs for all adults in urban and rural areas;
b) a flat of 150 sq. meters (1500 sq. feet) for every family, both in urban and rural areas, on a monthly rent of only Rs 5000;
c) raise the level of every agricultural land holding to economic size
The implementation of the plan will cause huge economic activity all over the country for decades. Ultimately, it will bring about an economic and social transformation of our society that will be the envy of other developing countries. (Though the plan is primarily for Pakistan, its basic concept can work in any developing country, with modifications to meet local conditions.)
The book is not an abstruse academic treatise or research study on poverty but an action plan in plain words. The language is simple and the style is concise.
I have given Urdu equivalents for terms because it is only a matter of time before the national language replaces English, which continues to retain its status of the colonial days as the official language even after six decades of Independence.
The Urdu version of the book is in second edition, published by Classic Publishers, Regal Chowk, The Mall, Lahore, Pakistan.
