Main Article Content
Public Distribution System (PDS) is a poverty alleviation programme and contributes towards the social welfare of the people. The study by focusing on the effectiveness of the PDS is of immense significance to the policy makers, Government and the Planning department by recognizing the rights of citizens and their entitlements for food grains, would suggest methods of ensuring food security especially among poor sections of the society. It identifies grey areas which would help CAPD officials to streamline the working of FPS so that distributional goals for welfare improvement are implemented and achieved. The PDS department implements the scheme of minimum support price to the producers of wheat, paddy and coarse grains and the distribution of food grains from the central pool. A close watch is kept on the stock and price levels of food grains and efforts are made to ensure their adequate availability at reasonable prices in different parts of the country.
