The United Progressive Alliance government has drafted a showpiece bill to guarantee food for each and every poor person in India. But the government is yet to define who is poor. After objections from within and outside the government, the Empowered Group of Ministers (egom) that drafted the National Food Security bill said it will consider changes. The government had sent the bill back to egom early this month. At a meeting of top ministers and Planning Commission deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia on April 5, egom said it will take three weeks to revise the bill.
