Published By: IGIDR on eSS | Published Date: April, 04 , 2008

In the context of the current public policy focus on rising food prices and their implications for food security, this paper examines two major issues raised: (i) Universalization of the public distribution system; and (ii) its implications for procurement and buffer-stocks. This paper is based on the recent evidence on the profile of public distribution system, its targeted version in particular, household’s reliance on the public distribution system and the open market, and its policy implications.
