According to survey reports in India 21% of Beggars have passed at least intermediate. That means Around 75,000 beggars of total 3.72 lakhs in the country included in this category.
Recent Census 2011 data reveal that Over 3,000 beggars are either having diplomas or graduates or post-graduates. They choose to beg as their professional because there is a lack of emplacement situation in our country. Insufficient of job which fetches them a decent income & having no social support could be the major reason.
NGOs believe giving rehabilitation for beggars in India but it is not an easy task as it looks. There is every chance of a beggar doing what he/she has done in the past because of the easy money.
