There are serious issues with regard to food and nutrition security in India. These have to do with a host of concerns in areas such as imbalances in production, excessive input costs, access, utilization, transportation, storage, pricing, distribution, etc. Several experts, expert panels, consortia, groups and individuals have worked and provided solutions to many of the issues. However key problems need to be addressed on an ongoing basis. The series will address these key issues.
