Uttam's Take: India on Global Hunger Index

Last updated on: October 20, 2020 12:49 IST

India ranked 94 among 107 nations -- yes, you read that right, 94 out of 107! -- in the Global Hunger Index 2020 and is in the 'serious' hunger category

Last year, India's rank was 102 out of 117 countries.

Neighbouring Bangladesh, Myanmar and Pakistan too are in the 'serious' category, but ranked higher than India in this year's hunger index.

While Bangladesh ranked 75, Myanmar and Pakistan are at the 78th and 88th position.

Nepal in 73rd and Sri Lanka in 64th position are in the 'moderate' hunger category.
