The access for food should be physical as well as economical to every human being. Every country has the duty to provide their citizen with safe and notorious food. The access of food should have any barriers and quality should be accepted by the mass. This paper critically analyses and evaluates the legislations related to Right of Food in India International law and the directive principle of the Constitution of India guarantees adequate housing as a human right. In many cases the Supreme Court has held that it is a very important part of right to life, but majority of Indian population in urban as well as in rural areas live in a very inadequate and insecure condition. Where they are not provided with basic amenities such as water, shelter and proper food. The inclusion of technology in the agricultural sector is making the lives of the farmers convenient but on the other hand the excessive use of chemicals are degrading the health of human lives. This paper is an effort to find out insights on the provisions available with relation to the Right to food and evaluate the interrelation of science and technology with food security. It is important to understand the Human rights aspect in food security and how technologies are in favor or adversely affecting the Human rights.
