The Subsidised Sugar Scheme, recently extended until March 31, 2026, by the Indian government under Prime Minister Narender Modi, aims to support economically vulnerable sections of society. This scheme provides a subsidy of Rs 18.50 per kg of sugar each month to approximately 1.89 crore families under the Antyodya Anna Yojna (AAY), distributed through the Public Distribution System (PDS). This initiative is part of a broader effort to ensure food and nutritional security for all, aligned with the government’s ‘Modi ki Guarantee’ of ‘Food for All, Nutrition for All’. The scheme not only offers economic support to the poorest citizens but also contributes to their health improvement by ensuring access to essential food items like sugar, dal, and atta at affordable prices.
