The central government has announced that it will give 12 kg foodgrains at Rs 12 to 80 crore people. This is part of the 'Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana', which will be implemented for the next three months. This means that 80 crore people, i.e. 6 out of every 10 people in the country, will require free foodgrains. However, this data about the country's poor is two and a half times more than the government's own data.
