Food Security in India through PDS

Download Paper


Every living creature on this earth needs food, water, air, clothing and shelter. These are the basic needs. Apart from these there are also other needs. Rich and middle class people do not find it difficult to get it. But, the poor people may not be able to afford it easily. Especially in the country like India there are people who find it difficult to get two meals a day. Almost one third of the country’s population continues to live below the poverty line and a large portion of poor live in rural areas. According to the Global Hunger Index Report 2012 of the International Food Research Institute, India ranks 97th in Global Hunger Index. India at present has a greater share of the poor around the world. Thirty years ago, India was a home to one fifth of world’s poor but now it accounts for one third of the World’s poor people. It means an increase in the number of poor people from 20% to 331/3%. In this regard Public Distribution System plays a very important role in the life of poor. The very purpose of the PDS is to provide food and non-food items at the subsidized prices. PDS is one of the food security measures to the people who live in below the poverty line.

Key Words
