Abstract:
Food insecurity is multi-dimensional and is influenced by factors related to unavailability, inaccessibility and inadequacy of food. In India, there is evidence of each of these aspects in one form or another contributing to food insecurity. Over the past two and half decades there has been a significant change in India's trade and economic structure. Public and private interventions in the early 1990s including trade liberalization, increased capital mobility, and development and adoption of new technological innovations are helping to revitalize India's agriculture, commercial and service sectors. In spite of the global economic crisis during the past few years, India's economy continued to grow and the country has emerged as one of the fastest growing economies in the world with accelerated annual growth rates around 7- 8 percent. Despite the unprecedented economic growth, India's growing population means that ensuring a continuous supply of food and maintaining national food security remains a major challenge for the government of India. So, effective measures are needed to achieve the goal of hunger free, food and nutritional secure India. Food security act is an opportunity and this can be regarded as appreciable step in India. But the framework of poverty estimation and identification is complex and impractical. Proper distribution and procurement are the issues in the way of implementation of the act. The need of the time is simplified, transparent and equitable framework for practicability of the act. The State and Central governments are taking positive steps to address the challenges of food security.
