There is plenty of literature on food security and public distribution system, findings of past studies found that in various parts of India hunger and malnutrition still persists in spite of huge stocks of food grains. Present study tries to find the role of Public Distribution System (PDS) in achieving food security its effectiveness and Impact of PDS on achieving the food security of households.
