The President of India ‘Shri Pranab Mukherjee’ has signed the ordinance of Food Security Bill.It means that now the Bill will be presented in both the house of Parliament in its Monsoon Session before it is passed.
The Food Security programme will be the biggest in the world with the government spending estimated at Rs 125,000 crore annually on supply of about 62 million tonnes of rice,wheat and coarse cereals to 67 per cent of the population.It aims to provide 5 kg of rice,wheat and coarse grains at Rs 3,Rs 2,Rs 1 per kg,respectively,every month to three-fourths of rural population and half the urban population in the country.
So,My fellow Indians what is your take on this..Will it be another Scam by our Government or Will it do any Good to the People of India?Because generally such bill never reaches to beneficiaries in India.

Here is what I have to say…Though I really wish that this time the Bill fulfill its purpose but looking at the reputation of Indian Government I hesitate to feel that way… 😦
