The Political Economy of Food Price Policy: The Case Study of India

Publisher: UNU-WIDER

The paper studies the policies on food price. The nature of food inflation, however, changed from being cereals-led to high value products (fruits and vegetables, and protein foods) during 2010–11 and 2011–12. This is a cause for concern given that India continues to face food security challenges given the large number of people living below the poverty line and a significant part of them being susceptible to food price shocks.
