National Food Security Bill, 2013 (also Right to Food Bill), was signed into law on September 12, 2013. This law aims to provide subsidized food grains to approximately two thirds
of India's 1.2 billion people. Under the provisions of the bill, beneficiaries are to be able to purchase 5 kilograms per eligible person per month of cereals at the following prices: rice at
INR3 per kg, wheat at INR 2 per kg, coarse grains (millet) at INR1 per kg. Pregnant women, lactating mothers, and certain categories of children are eligible for daily free meals.

On September 27, 2013, the Government of India notified in its Gazette a “National Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE)” policy with the vision of holistic and integrated
development of a child, with focus on care and early learning at each sub-stage of developmental continuum, in order to support children’s all round and holistic development. This is
envisaged to be provided by several care providers such as parents, families, communities and other institutional mechanism like public, private and no governmental service providers.
The ECCE Policy refers to the formative stages of first six years of life, with well-marked 3 sub-stages- (i). Conception to birth, (ii) Birth to 3 years, (iii) 3 to 6 years. And then the
linkage with primary school system will be streamlined to address the issue of continuum and smooth transition from ECCE to primary school building. For detail please visit WCD
website. http://www.wcd.nic.in/ and download the whole document.
According to ECCE Policy 2013, the universal access to integrated child development including ECCE for all young children remains the primary responsibility of the government
through ICDS.
