Why is the Public Distribution System criticised?
Answer:
The PDS has been criticised because:

  • Instances of hunger are prevalent despite overflowing granaries.
  • The FCI godowns are overflowing with grains where some are rotting away and some are eaten by rats.
  • Shopkeepers of fair price shops are black marketing the goods in the retail market, though they are not allowed to do so.
