AbstractMalnutrition and under nutrition are critical issues in Maharashtra. In spite of being a high growth state in the country, it has occasionally remained in the news due to deaths caused by under nutrition in the recent past.

This evaluation is undertaken in the context of the poverty levels at the district level in Maharashtra.
