Guy Standing writing in the December 2015 issue of Global Dialogue.

What did the people do with their Basic Income of 300 rupees?

$ Many used money to improve their housing, latrines, walls and roofs, and to take precautions against malaria.
$ The basic income grants led to small-scale investments – more and better seeds, sewing machines, establishment of little shops, repairs to equipment, and so on.
$ The grants led to more labor and work – there was a shift from casual wage labor to more self-employed farming and business activity
$ families were able to buy things like shoes and pay for transport to school
