NDTV Looks at the Poor Parsi Controversy

This is a NDTV segment with panelists Alyque Padamsee, Dinshaw Mehta, Rustom Marshall and Jehangir Patel.

UPDATE: The full 21 minutes segment is on NDTV’s website: http://www.ndtv.com/video/player/news/parsis-poor-at-rs-90-000-a-month/235807 [Thanks Dara Acidwalla]

The plan panel says that you aren’t poor if you earn more than Rs 900 in a month. Mumbai’s Parsi community begs to differ. They say anyone earning less than Rs 90,000 a month is poor and is eligible for a subsidised flat. On India Decides, we discuss who exactly is a ‘poor’ Parsi.
