I am directed to send herewith the Mid-Day Meal Calendar for the Financial Year 2013-14 for favour of your taking necessary action with stipulation that number of days as sanctioned per month may vary keeping the total days in a quarter intact.

In this connection, it may be informed that all eligible students attending the institutions must be served MDM on all school days including Saturdays irrespective of the approved number of students and working days. If the average number of children availing MDM and the working days are more than the approval, the concerned Nodal Officer may approach the State Govt. with evidence at the earliest for providing additional fund and foodgrains. The said proposal, thereafter, will be sent to the Govt. of India for additional allotment.

This may kindly be circulated to all concerned.
Enclo: As stated

Yours faithfully,
Project Director

    Raipur primary school in keshpur circle in paschim medinipur has not been giving the mid day meal daily.a large number of poor students depend on this meal. School authority provides two to three days in a week. Villagers protest against it but they are indifferent. Please take some steps to feed the poor students

    My School situated at Uttar Dinajpur Disrtict under Kaliyaganj Circle I. School name is Beurjhari F. P. School. We have received the rice for Mid-Day-Meal irregularly every month. We have yet not received the rice for the month of December ’13 and also the month of January 2014 till date. So I would like to request the concern authority to look after this matter.

    Both funds & foodgrains should be increased to maintain good quality of MDM.At least four rooms should be constructed for 1. Foodgrains 2. Fuel 3. Dyining room 4. Kitchen. All rooms are to be well decorated. Plates should also be supplied & kept in schools

    Mid day meal of different Schools in Dakshin Dinajpur are running poorly by giving very low qualities of food. Some Schools are showing more students than the existing capacities and making false full utilization regularly.So the authorities are not paying attention for proper monitoring the system for a long time.So I may request the authority to check the misuse of money for the poor students.
