The Government of India launched the National Programme for Nutritional Support to Primary education on 15 August 1995. This program emphasizes that 3 kilograms of rice will be provided to each child per month for 10 months in a year.
Thus, this same scheme was applied by the Government of Jharkhand from class I to V in the state. In 2001, the honorable Supreme Court gave a direction of providing a cooked meal to children. As a result, the Jharkhand State Government launched the MDM (Midday Meal) to all primary school children in government, local body, and government-aided schools.
This Mid Day Meal Programme was later extended to the children registered under the EGS (Education Guarantee Scheme), Madarsa or Makhtab, and AIE (Alternative & Innovative Education) centers.
