How are food insecured people disproportionately large in some regions of the country?
Answer:

  • There are some states which are economically backward states with high incidence of poverty.
  • These are the tribal and remote areas, and regions more prone to natural disasters, etc.
  • In fact, the states of UP, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, parts of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra account for the largest number of food insecure people in the country.
