This book is aimed at covering food security of those people who have less access to food for survival. It considers food-poverty as a basis for searching whether public distribution system works to ensure food security of people targeted. The book accepts in principle the idea that social security has to aim at abolishing want by guaranteeing every citizen an adequate income at all times to meet his basic needs. While dealing with the operational part of social security of individuals, the book takes a narrow frame of food security for people targeted. Thus, it essentially aims to examine whether the food distribution mechanism in India has failed or succeeded, and to what extent, to ensure the interests of the income-poor people in terms of their steady access to essential commodities from the public distribution system.
