CM Gehlot approves Rs 864 cr for milk to students of classes 1 to 8
Jaipur: The Rajasthan government on Tuesday sanctioned Rs 864 crore for daily inclusion of milk in midday meals to school students up to Class 8 across the state.
At present, sweetened-hot milk is served twice a week in government schools under the ‘Mukhyamantri Bal Gopal Yojana’, launched on November 29, 2022.
To further boost the nutritional value of the daily mid-day meals, milk will now be provided during the remaining four days as well for all students of classes 1 to 8, an official statement said.
The scheme, announced by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in the 2023-24 state budget, will be started in government schools, madrassas and special training centers to ensure that students opting for mid-day meals are provided milk as well.
