A Disciplined Maverick
Antyodaya Anna Yojana has been launched by the Hon'ble Prime Minister  of  India on  the  25th December,2000. This  scheme  reflects  the  commitment  of  the Government of India to ensure food security for all create a hunger  free  India in the next five years and to reform and improve the Public Distribution System so  as to serve the poorest of the poor in rural and urban areas. It is for the poorest of poor that the  Antyodya  Anna  Yojana  has  been  conserved.  It  is estimated  that  5% of population are unable to get two square meals a day on a sub stained basis through out the year. Their purchasing power is  so  low  that they  are not in a position to buy food grains round the year even at BPL rates. It is this 5% of out population (5 crores of people or 1 crore families)  which constitutes the target group of Antyodaya Anna Yojana.
