Officials asked to monitor Dalbhat programme
Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Wednesday asked officials to monitor `Mukhiya Mantri Dalbhat Yozana (MMDY)`, which has been introduced for the people below poverty line, every fortnight.
Issuing the directions to the department of Food and Public Distribution System, Munda also asked the department?s Principal Secretary Rajbala Verma to ensure full payment to farmers selling grains at government-sponsored kiosks with minimum support price.
The BJP-led government had introduced MMDY last year providing rice, dal and curry at Rs five per plate to the BPL people at selected inns across the state.
Apprising Munda of the department’s progress, Verma told him that a total of 70,000 metric tonne, bought from farmers at minimum support price, had been made available for the Food Corporation of India, according to an official release here.
