This paper examines factors affecting the calorie gap by considering the risk of calorie inadequacy or excess at the tails of food intakes. First, the calorie gap was found to respond differently to various socio-economic characteristics, social assistance programmes, as well as caste and religion. Second, these impacts depended on rural/urban differences and at other times on the development of rural/urban differences and at other times on the development of the states. These findings pose significant challenges towards achieving a balanced regional food security policy
