It explores the issues of fixing support and prices, quantities to be procured and distributed, extending the coverage of PDS, ways of targeting beneficiares, the management of fair price shops, and methods for preventing leakages. The contributors make various practical suggestions for reform of the PDS, thus enabling it to meet its welfare objectives.
