National Food Security Act

The National Food Security Act was passed in 2013 to provide subsidised food grains to two-thirds of the Indian population. It provides legal backing for existing food security programmes like the Midday Meal Scheme, Integrated Child Development Services scheme and the PDS. The Union Cabinet headed by PM Modi approved the allocation of additional food grains for all beneficiaries of NFSA for the months of May and June.
