The National Food Security Act, 2013 (NFSA) provides that every State Government shall, by notification, constitute a State Food Commission for the purpose of monitoring and review of implementation of the Act. It has been decided that in case a State decides
to set up State Food Commission on exclusive basis, Central Government will provide one time financial assistance for non building assets for State Food Commission.
Under the Scheme, to evaluate the impact of the TPDS on the target beneficiaries and to plug loopholes in implementation of TPDS, evaluation studies on functioning of TPDS are taken up by the Department.
