Sixth Five Year Plan: (1980-85)

From the sixth five year plan onwards, there was massive investment in the Social Services. These social services included Education, Health and Family Planning, Housing & Urban Development and other services. From the 6th Plan onwards, the role & scope of the Planning Commission also increased. The plan objectives were poverty alleviation and higher economic growth. Special attention was paid to removal of poverty through the rural development schemes such as Integrated Rural Development Programme (IRDP), National Rural Employment Programme (NREP), and Rural Landless Employment Guarantee Programme (RLEGP) etc.  The poverty was 47% in the beginning of the plan and a target of 30% was fixed to achieve.
