NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Social Science Economics Chapter 4 - Food Security in India

The chapter starts with a brief description of the necessity of food and its definition. To have proper availability of food in all states, there are several factors to be followed. The country can prevent famine if there is a surplus amount of food stored in the government warehouses to supply the country's population.

The chapter focuses on migrant workers who can’t afford to stock up food resources for a month. Government schemes have also been used to tackle the issue of hunger and food insecurity in the country. Various acts and policies have been passed and implemented by the government to ensure that the people accessed the food grains. In the end, the chapter discusses the role of cooperatives in ending food insecurity.
