Residents living below poverty line to get subsidies

Residents living below poverty line to get subsidiesA new standard that raises the limit of Dongguan city poverty line. In the new standard residents with a monthly income of less that 440 CNY will belong to group living under the city’s poverty line and is to receive a subsidy from the government.

The old standard last year was 400 CNY and the new standard have already taken effect since January of this year. This increase was a result of the city new low income standard natural growth mechanism that was established last June. This was a mechanism that automatically increases the poverty line when changes happen to the city’s income index. The mechanism uses the poverty line of January 2008 as reference and every two years the standard adjusts on accordance to the residents income index.

Even with the new poverty line, the number of people living under that poverty live have dramatically decreased compared to the same period last year. also after the new adjustment the Dongguan poverty line is now 341 percent higher that the existing national poverty line of 1,196 CNY per capita income in a year.
