Abstract: Poverty and chronic hunger have long been a tragic aspect of human society. Globally, millions of absolutely poor people are suffering from hunger, under nutrition and deficiency diseases which are no longer acceptable in a civilized society. Though, unprecedented success in the field of technology was achieved in the last three decades of globalisation, liberalisation and modernisation, yet the sad part of the story is that even now 795 million people in the world are not sure about their next meal. The Population of our country touched 1.21 billion in 2011, of which about 21.9 per cent population lives on a per capita income below 1.25 US dollar. India has been ranked 25th in the Global Hunger Index in 2015 because of its largest share of hungry population in the World. Approximately 15.2 per cent (194.6 million) population are incapable to meet their food requirement and eventually remain hungry (FAO, 2015). It is due to the rising population growth at a Malthusian rate that is causing problems like environmental degradation, pressure on land and resources, poverty and hunger. .. newline
