Telangana govt to introduce CM breakfast scheme for school children from October 24 – Times of India

HYDERABAD: Taking cue from Tamil Nadu government, the Telangana government has decided to introduce Chief Minister’s Breakfast Scheme in all the government schools during working days from October 24. The government is expected to spend Rs 400 crore per year for implementing the scheme.
Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said the state government has been giving priority for welfare of women and children in the state. Many schemes have been launched in the past 10 years which have resulted in transformational change in the social and health sectors.
After the breakfast meal was launched in Tamil Nadu, CM KCR sent a team there to study the scheme. While Tamil Nadu was implementing the scheme from Class 1 to 5, KCR decided to extend it to up to high school students.
“The idea behind the scheme is that no student should go to school empty stomach especially those whose parents are agricultural labourers who may not provide breakfast to their children. This scheme will also help in giving nutritious food to the children and can focus on their studies,” KCR said.
As per sources, over nine lakh students are studying in about 5,000 schools across the state including residential schools. Since residential schools have already been providing breakfast and meals, it would be extended to only day schools.
The school education department, in its order. said that, “The government has decided to provide free breakfast under the “Chief Ministers Breakfast Scheme” to school children studying from Class 1 to Class l0 in government and local bodies schools on all school working days.”
