Memorandum to Jt. Secretary, Food Dept. on National Food Security Bill
Subject: Our comments on the National Food Security Bill (NFSB)
We do not wish to reiterate the comments that have been already made
effectively by the Right to Food Campaign and others. Our main focus is that
the proposed National Food Security Bill (NFSB) does not ensure ‘nutritional
security’ as claimed in the Bill. If the goal of the NFSB is to provide
‘nutritional security’, it should be in consonance with the National Nutritional
Policy (NNP) enunciated in 1993.
