NAC seeks inclusion of SCs/STs in ambit of food security law
TNN, Jan 22, 2011, 05.16am IST

National Advisory Council has asked the government to provide highest
priority to the inclusion of SC/ST families among beneficiaries of the
proposed food security legislation.

The Sonia Gandhi-led council decided on Friday to write to the rural
development ministry, urging it to include the socially vulnerable
section in the 'priority group' in the BPL survey to be conducted by
the ministry.

The council's draft legislation has recommended providing 35kg
foodgrain — rice, wheat, millets — at Rs 3, Rs 2 and Re 1 per kg to
the group.
