This publication provides an overview on the main issues debated during the development and passage of the India’s National Food Security Act (2013), which legally binds national and state governments to extend far-reaching social protection to the country’s population. It raises many lively and pertinent debates that may be useful for policy-makers and advocates, especially in low-income countries but also emerging economies, who wish to strengthen the programmatic and legal frameworks for food and nutrition in their respective countries. The debates are also available as a set of briefs at the following link: <a href="http://www.fao.org/3/a-i4962e/index.html" target="new">http://www.fao.org/3/a-i4962e/index.html</a>
