By K R Venugopal
In this rights-based study of the ICDS programme sponsored by the Council for Social Development, New Delhi, Venugopal holds a mirror up to the way this flagship programme of the Government of India is faring and highlights its serious unmet expectations in implementation. K.R. Venugopal (IAS) retired in 1995 as Secretary to the Prime Minister of India. While with the Government of Andhra Pradesh he held positions as Collector and District Magistrate and as Secretary to Government in the Departments of Planning, Social Welfare and Food. In the Government of India, he served in the Food Corporation of India, as Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Human Resource Development in charge of the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) and worked in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) as Additional Secretary and later as Secretary, from 1990 to 1995. In 1992-93 he was the Prime Minister's personal representative and Commissioner on the Independent South Asian Commission on Poverty Alleviation established at the Colombo SAARC Summit of 1991 and co-authored the Commission's Report Meeting the Challenge. Venugopal was India's Chief Negotiator at the UN's preparatory processes in 1994-95 for the World Summit on Social Development (WSSD) and was also member of the delegation led by the Prime Minister to the WSSD held in Copenhagen in 1995. He served the United Nations in 1996 as Senior Policy Adviser on Poverty Policy for SAARC. He helped design a comprehensive Public Distribution System for the state of Andhra Pradesh in the early 1980s and later in the 1990s helped formulate, while in the PMO, a revamped Public Distribution System and the Employment Assurance Scheme (EAS) dovetailing rural employment for the poor with their food grains needs in the Public Distribution System, making for their comprehensive food security. He was Special Rapporteur to India's National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) between 1999 and 2006 to take forward the mandate of the Supreme Court of India to the NHRC on the laws relating to bonded labour in the southern region and also authored several investigative reports on violations of human rights. Venugopal has also authored Deliverance from Hunger: The Public Distribution System in India.
