AIZAWL, Jan 30 - Mizoram Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Minister John Rotluangliana today said that the Food Security Act (FSA) would be launched in the State in February while foodgrains as per provisions of the Act would be distributed to the people from March.
Rotluangliana said that the actual implementation of the FSA was scheduled to commence from March as the Food Corporation of India (FCI) would issue the rice allotment only on March 1.
