Recently, over 50 lakh people have benefited from Indira Rasoi Yojana (a kitchen scheme), in Rajasthan. The scheme was launched in August 2020.

Key Points

  • Aim: To provide nutritious food to the poor and needy twice a day at concessional rates.
    • Under the scheme, each plate serves 100 grams of pulses and vegetables each, 250 grams of chapati and pickles.
    • It aligns with the World Food Day’s 2020 theme to grow, nourish and sustain together.
  • Implementation: The local voluntary organisations have been roped in for establishing the centres near the places such as bus stands, railway stations and hospitals and for successful implementation of the scheme.
  • Background: The current Rajasthan government scrapped the previous Annapurna Rasoi Yojana which was offering breakfast and lunch on the lines of Tamil Nadu’s Amma Unavagam (mother’s canteen).
  • Monitoring: A committee headed by the District Collector will be monitoring the implementation of the scheme. A special app has also been created for monitoring the food quality.
  • Target: The scheme targets to serve 1.34 lakh people per day in the state. Till now the scheme has benefitted 50.30 lakh persons across the State.
