India faces significant challenges regarding food scarcity. As per September 2021, approximately 189.2 million people in India were undernourished, and about 34.7% of children under five suffered from stunting due to malnutrition. Despite being a major food producer, the country grapples with issues of food distribution, access, and wastage. Climate-related factors like droughts and floods also affect agricultural output.
