NEW DELHI: According to a top official, Maharashtra is experiencing a daily shortfall of one crore eggs, and the animal husbandry department has developed a plan to boost the state's supply. In Maharashtra, daily egg consumption exceeds 2.25 crore.

The state has the capacity to produce 1 to 1.25 crore eggs per day. To address the scarcity, eggs are now purchased from Karnataka, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu, he said.

Based on the data in the research, it is projected that 56 crore individuals, or 40.6% of the population, experienced moderate or severe food insecurity in India between 2019 and 21. The percentage of the population in the nation that experiences extreme food insecurity has increased from 20.3% in 2018–20 to 22.3% in 2019–21. In 2019–21, the equivalent percentage for the entire world was approximately 10.7%. 37% of the world's seriously food insecure people live in India alone.
The SOFI report provides estimates for the prevalence of undernourishment (PoU) and moderate to severe food insecurity (PMSFI) at the global, regional, and national levels each year. Given their age, sex, and body mass, the PoU calculates the percentage of the population that typically does not consume even the minimum number of calories needed for a normal and active existence.
The PMSFI calculates the percentage of the population that experiences various degrees of food insecurity. These projections are based on surveys that gather data on people's perceptions of food access limitations.
