World Food Day: Not just hunger, adulteration too remains a serious issue in India
Updated : October 16, 2019 03:56 PM IST
India has slipped to 102nd position in the Global Hunger Index 2019 of 117 countries, behind its neighbours Nepal, Bangladesh and even Pakistan.
While hunger level is at alarming rate in the country, it is to be noted that food safety, too, remains to be an equally critical issue, if not more.
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India has some hard-hitting data on adulteration in its annual report, which was accessed by CNBC-TV18.
