Is it true that the average consumption of PDS food grains in the Southern states is much higher than that in Madhya Pradesh? Explain.


#2

This is true because in Madhya Pradesh only 5% of wheat and rice consumption of the poor is met through the ration shops.
In contrast consumption in southern states is very high in the range of 3-4 kgs per person per month and in Madhya Pradesh it is 500 gm per person per month.
