Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities

Reduce inequality within and among countries


The Government of Uttar Pradesh is committed to reducing inequalities through appropriate public policy interventions that foster the life chances of the poor. Primary motors will be quality services in health and education, enhanced social protection floor to reduce vulnerabilities, effective implementation of poverty reduction programmes and increased public investments in rural infrastructure, and agriculture. Governance structures will be strengthened for increased participation of people from socially and economically marginalised sections as well as for efficiency in the existing mechanisms of distributive justice. Emphasis will be given to strengthening the Gram Panchayats to identify the most vulnerable and support their access to quality basic services and social protection coverage.


  • Improve the quality and coverage of essential and other services that will remove the entry barriers and strengthen the existing platforms for inclusion. This will include better wage employment and health outcomes, universal access for children to quality schooling and improvements in the provision of basic amenities like electricity, water, road, sanitation and housing.

  • Use of appropriate technology in reducing some of the access barriers, particularly in relation to the information.

  • Skill development among the socially disadvantaged sections through Kaushal Kendra for improved income and occupational and social mobility

  • For optimising the opportunity of Rashtriya Gram Swaraj Abhiyan (RGSA) and GPDP to address inequalities, over 59,000 Gram Panchayats and 700,000 elected members will be trained in understanding and addressing the issues of inequality at the GP level through a regional level network of training organisations.

  • Increased access to the criminal justice system for the socially and economically marginalised communities through administrative reforms and ICT enabled platforms of redressal.
