   Note:-

  1. The base year for CCPI calculation was changed from 2006/07 to 2013 since January 2017.
  2. From 2017 onwords, the national poverty line and district poverty lines are recalculated, considering both rebased CCPI and spatial price index values using HIES 2016.
  3. The reason for the increase in official poverty line is the high CCPI value reported in August 2021, compared to previous month.
