Effects of subsidized wheat consumption by state in India

This paper reports the results of a study of the effects of the Indian government's consumer subsidies on wheat demand. Results indicate consumption of subsidized wheat is higher in urban areas than in rural areas. The public distribution of wheat in most states had little effect on demand in the commercial market, which suggests the government is effective in targeting subsidized wheat to poor consumers.
