Right to food is a basic human right and deeply linked with right to live with dignity. Articles 21, 39(a) & 27 of the Constitution mandates the states to provide adequate means of livelihood, raise the level of nutrition and standard of living of the citizens. As per the data report of national and international agencies, a large number people in India are suffering from malnutrition, undernourished, underweight and stunted. In many cases Indian Judiciary has taken serious concern about the socioeconomic offences. Targeted Public Distribution System is a major and wide-ranging poverty alleviation programme in India that leads towards the socio-economic welfare of the people.
