Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar said on Wednesday it will be difficult to implement the proposed Food Security Act with existing distribution system and suggested massive reforms. “I will be failing in my duty if I do not emphasise the fact that the Food Security Act will never succeed in achieving its goal in letter and spirit, if we try to push the same through the existing PDS apparatus,” Pawar said.The minister felt that “a massive process re-engineering” was required to make the Public Distribution System (PDS) compatible with the proposed law.
