India will not cut on its food welfare programme: PM Narendra Modi

A panel set up by Modi had urged the government in January to lower the number of beneficiaries to 40 per cent from 67 per cent under the programme.

India will not scale down its multi-billion dollar food welfare programme that promises ultra-cheap rice and wheat to most of its people, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told lawmakers in parliament on Tuesday.

A panel set up by Modi had urged the government in January to lower the number of beneficiaries to 40 per cent from 67 per cent under the programme, which is estimated to cost the exchequer $20 billion in the fiscal year that begins in April.

"The government has not decided to reduce the coverage under food security from 67 per cent. There is no such plan either," added Modi.
