Cabinet Food Security Bill 2013

Cabinet Food Security Bill 2013 cleared revised Food Security Bill

The Union Cabinet cleared the National Food Security Bill that gives legal entitlement to 67 per cent
population (including 75 per cent rural and 50 per cent urban) for subsidised grains under the Targeted
Public Distribution System (TPDS). A beneficiary will be entitled to 5 kg of rice, wheat or coarse cereals at
Rs. 3, 2 and Re. 1 a kg a month and will be identified by the States based on parameters prescribed by the
Union government. The Cabinet gave its nod to the 71 amendments proposed by the Food Ministry, including
the one that said the 2.43 crore Antyodaya Anna Yojna beneficiary households will continue to get their quota
of 35 kg grains a month under the TPDS.In its revised form, the Bill favours the “two-child norm” by denying
maternal benefits to a pregnant woman beyond two live births.
