Is industrialization in India beneficial for poor people?

  • It is not

    Industrialization does help people in india, but only those who can afford to pay for the rewards that come of it. All the poor people gain nothing and cxan barely make ends meet to get even a square meal each day. Half the time they are cheated form the money they deserve. People come out into the cities to make money but end up living in slums and finding lousy jobs that dont pay very well.

  • The Life- Giving Revolution

    Modern Life, lead by us is truly unimaginable without the industries. How can we live without the basic products, which one needs in his daily life. You yourself imagine a life without these manufactured products. From the time you wake up till tje one when you go to bed, you are using industrial products. How can you be so ungrateful to such products?

  • Nope, not always negative, you know...

    Industrialization in the right spirit is fair and equitable. As said before, it is the implementation, the greed and corruption that comes along with it, that makes it one sided. An example of an industry changing the whole town is Jamshedpur. Anyone who’s been to the place knows how developed it is, thanks to the Tatas being there. This kind of industrialization also gives back to the people what they put in. Further, industrialization promotes entrepreneurship as seen from the Tatas, Ambanis, Wadias, Modis, etc. Further more, it also helps build ancillary industries such as for spare parts and such, thus giving indirect benefits of employment, entrepreneurship, etc.

    Industrialization doesn’t necessarily make people lose jobs. Industrialization is what helps a farmer plough, irrigate his field, spray his pesticides, harvest his crop. From the sickle to harvester combine, it has made the life of poor peasantry easier. It has given the poor jobs in the factories, industries related to these factories, in transport and communications, in raw material procurement and so forth. The reason why the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, France, etc have low levels of poverty is because they are highly industrialized nations which are able to deliver jobs, and thus better income and amenities to their public. India and China’s economic growth has been flawed not by the lack of industrialization, but the ill-spirited methods of industrialization.

  • Yes, it can be.

    More jobs and income are always welcome, especially in low income areas. However, the growth of factories and other industrial commerce in poor areas are often the result of someone wanting cheap labor. This means lower standards and health issues. That being said, it's better to take the risk and get your pay than guarantee starvation on the streets.

  • Yes, for the most part.

    This is a bit of a grey area. On one hand, industrialization always produces a wealth of jobs and new constructions and forward motions. But, on the other hand, it also creates a type of limbo between abject poverty and acceptable minimum wages/standards of living. If the project is conducted properly and seen through all the way, then it will provide a good influence, otherwise it will have the opposite effect.

  • No, it is against farmers.

    Even though Industrialization helps create new jobs, the factories are constructed in vast fertile regions of land, which could have otherwise been used for agricultural purposes. Also, the poor people's shelter is lost, and their livelihood is majorly and largely affected. Thus, Industrialization is not beneficial towards the poor population of India.

  • No it cannot be possible

    No benefit to the worker level Many industrialists in India have emerged as world’s richest person and many claims India has a good Industrial potential. We cannot disapprove of the advantages provided by industrialization. It has made available cheap clothes, easy transport, cheap food, cars, railways, bridges and many more, without which we cannot even think existing in the world. Three most essential things that people in the modern world cannot survive are provided by industrialization that is Television, Computer and Mobile Phones. Industrialization has helped Indians emerge as millionaire, for example why don’t you consider “Vijay Mallya” who owns Royal Challenge, Royal Stag, Kingfisher Drinks and Airlines, Kingfisher Villa in Goa, IPL team “Royal Challengers Bangalore”, Formula 1 team “Force India” and many wine companies of which you may not be knowing the names. He says he doesn’t want India to stay far behind in Formula 1, so what did he implement-Build a new Formula 1 racing track in Delhi worth big bucks! Just think how far the Indians have progressed in terms of industrialization.

  • Industrialization exploits our poor.

    While industrialization has brought many new benefits to the people of India, it has its limits. Without the proper passage and application of occupational and environmental laws, our continued buildup will either exploit the poor, or bypass them completely. We need to foster a culture of raising the standard of living for everyone.

  • The poor negatively effected as India industrializes

    While increased job opportunities for India's poor may be one benefit of industrialization, the truth is the poor get shafted by the social, economic, and environmental by-products of industrialization. More than those in the middle or upper class who might have hope of managerial or executive positions in industrial workplaces, the poor are likely to be given the most demanding and least compensated jobs; any expansion of industry inevitably leads to more injuries and health issues and, usually, the same levels of poverty among the grunt industrial workers. Industrialism is not sustainable without continually breaking the backs of the lower class and decreasing their quality of life in the name of profit.
