Universal Basic Income has caught a lot of attention in recent years, garnering an extensive exchange of views from a multitude of academicians and researchers. This paper focuses on the effectiveness of Universal Basic Income in effectively confronting and tackling hunger, undernourishment, poverty and their concomitant repercussions in India. A wide range of the Indian population has been and still is vulnerable to the maladies of hunger and undernourishment. This paper walks through the condition of India in perspective with these problems over the past years, and discusses the advent of Universal Basic Income as a feasible and effective solution to fight them. Modern innovations have dispossessed more than half the inhabitants of every nation of their natural inheritance, without providing for them, as ought to have been done, an indemnification for that loss, and has thereby created a species of poverty and wretchedness that did not exist before1 . World is a shared place where the whole income has to be shared among all. Universal Basic Income is one such Policy. We live in a world with widespread undernutrition, meager healthcare, and dogged hunger, and to our chagrin, all of this is aggravated by natural dire straits such as famines and flood. We do hold a sustainable development goal to eradicate hunger in the next 8 years, but as perceptible from the dejected data, reports, and also a massive and long-standing pandemic, we are nowhere in the girth of the completion of the goal. But whilst creating policies and strategies, there is an inherent pessimism in our approaches and our reactions to dealing with this massive problem. There are many problem specific Policies, but there is a universal Policy named as Universal Basic Income, which can act as a weapon to attack everything at the same time. Universal basic income (UBI) is a government program in which every adult citizen receives a set amount of money regularly. This paper focuses upon this economic Policy, 1 grundskyld. "Thomas Paine.
