Evaluation Study of Targeted Public Distribution System in Selected States

 Using primary survey data, this report assesses whether, and to what extent, the weaknesses noted by past evaluation studies on the TPDS have been adequately addressed by state governments. Six states viz., Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal are covered. Of these, Chhattisgarh, Bihar and Karnataka have already implemented the NFSA (2013), while the remaining states follow the TPDS.
