A key legislation the Congress party is pushing is on food security. The legislation, which for the first time guarantees food security to the entire population excluding the creamy layer, is expected to give electoral ammunition to the ruling party. The prospect of the draft law being passed in the budget session has improved after the standing committee on food, consumer affairs and public distribution submitted its report on it on 17 January. The National Food Security Bill, 2011, was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 22 December 2011. PRS Legislative Research compares the draft legislation with the standing committee’s recommendations.
