This abstract summarizes a critical investigation into the complex connections between human rights and food sustainability in India. In a nation with a growing population and complicated socio-economic dynamics, the pursuit of food security and sustainable agriculture methods is of the utmost importance India has a legal duty to see to it that its citizens' right to enough nourishment is safeguarded as a signatory to international human rights agreements. This study examines the degree to which India complies with its human rights obligations with regard to its food laws and practices, particularly in light of the country's growing environmental problems, shifting dietary habits, and widening economic inequities. The study takes an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating ideas from sociology, economics, law, and agriculture. It evaluates how sustainable food production is. This study examines the accessibility, availability, and affordability of nutritious food for vulnerable populations, such as marginalized communities and rural farmers, and assesses the sustainability of food production and distribution systems, scrutinizing their impact on environmental resources, land use, and climate change.
