Hunger Index: poor ranking devoid of ground reality and facts, says Govt.

The Government on Friday challenged India’s poor ranking in the Global Hunger Index 2021 and the methodology used calling it devoid of ground reality and facts. The Index launched on Thursday ranked India at 101 position of 116 countries. India is also among the 31 countries where hunger has been identified as serious. India ranked 94 among 107 countries in the Global Hunger Index (GHI) released last year.

The publishing agencies of the Global Hunger Report Concern World Wide and Welt Hunger Hilfe have not their due diligence before releasing the report. The methodology used by FAO is unscientific. They have based their assessment on the results of a four question opinion poll, which was conducted telephonically by Gallup said by the Ministry of Women and Child Development. The Undernourishment data are provided by the Food and Agriculture Organisation and Child mortality data are sourced from the UN Inter-agency Group for Child Morality Estimation.
