Ram Vilas Paswan sets deadline for Food Security Act standards

At the same time, these states have to make proper arrangements for doorstep delivery of subsidised food grains and also check black marketing.

Ram Vilas Paswan, the Union Food Minister has asked 11 states and union territories that have implemented the Food Security Act to meet all standards by December end, says a PTI report.

The minister has also warned the states that failing these standards may lead the Centre to rethink over the continuation. “The Centre has written a letter to the chief ministers of all 11 states and UTs, where the Food Security Act has been made functional, to meet all standards of the (Food Security) Legislation by December-end," Paswan said.

"We cannot allow providing huge subsidy worth Rs 1.31 lakh crore annually without all mandatory conditions being met," he added, adding the ministry would "rethink" over continuation of the Act in states that do not meet all standards.

Hailing Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh for meeting all conditions for implementation of the Act, Paswan warned Bihar for not creating infrastructure for effective implementation of the legislation.

The minister also said that every state and UTs implementing the Act would have to put a list of beneficiaries online.
