New Delhi, January 26: The School Education Department has begun implementation of the mid-day meal scheme with a revised menu in government schools.
The State government on Monday released Rs 159 crore in the first phase for the implementation of the scheme against the requisite amount of Rs 167 crore.
The remaining amount will be sanctioned in a phased manner. As per the new menu, students are served pulihora and tomato dal.
However, several schools failed to give eggs though it is in today’s menu.
“Since the schools reopened today after the 10-day Sankranti vacation, we faced the problem of lack of egg stock. A few schools still managed to procure fresh eggs, a bit late, and served them to students in the middle of classes,” said DEO MV Rajyalakshmi.
