Global Hunger Index 2022: India ranked 107 out of 121 countries | India News.

NEW DELHI: India has been ranked 107th out of 121 countries in the Global Hunger Index (GHI) 2022; a score of 29.1 puts the country in the “serious” category.
India has slipped 6 places from its 2021 ranking of 101 (among 116 countries).
The GHI is based on four indicators — under-nourishment, wasting (low weight for height), stunting (low height for age) and under-five mortality. It measures and tracks hunger globally as well as by region and by country, and is prepared by European NGOs of Concern Worldwide and Welthungerhilfe.
All of India’s neighbours, including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar and Pakistan- have fared better. China, with a score of less than 5, has topped the chart, together with 16 other countries.
Former finance minister P Chidambaram of the Congress lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after publication of the report, while stating that 22.4 crore people in India are undernourished.
