Performance of Targeted Public Distribution System in Kerala

Publisher: Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi

Targeted Public Distribution System was introduced in the country following the failure of the Universal PDS to serve below the poverty line and poorest of the poor households. It is being implemented in the country through a three-tier structure which consists of Antyodaya, BPL (Below Poverty Line) and APL (Above Poverty Line) households. The present study enquires the extent to which the food grains and the ration subsidy reached the rural and urban households under the PDS and how many households moved out of official poverty line expenditure due to ration income in the State of Kerala.
