BEST PRACTICES All the HCS/PCS Officers working in Chandigarh Administration have been involved in the monitoring of MDM activities. Feedback forms. Mechanized transportation. Stainless steel/Aluminium buckets with lids, containers have been provided in schools. Helpers have been engaged in schools for serving the meals and washing the utensils, in the ratio of one helper for every 100 students. Teachers also supervise the distribution of meals.

GENERAL INFORMATION ●Weekly MDM Menu is displayed in the schools. ●MDM logo is painted on the outer walls of the schools. ● No complaint of social discrimination. ● Most of the Cook-cum-Helpers belong to SC/OBC/Minority communities. ● No complaint regarding the quantity, quality and hygiene of MDM.
MONITORING BY PUNJAB UNIVERSITY FOR THE PERIOD FROM 1.10.2011 TO 31.3.2012 Positive Features Sample schools covered: 40 schools ●Hot cooked meal is served daily. ● On the day of visit, 77.42% students of the total present were having MDM. ● Students like Karhi-Rice, Rajmah Rice. ● The students who were bringing food from home stated that they take food when it is of their liking, or sometimes they took Karhi/ Rajmah only. ● Quantity of food received from the kitchens is enough for all. No surplus/ wastage or deficiencies.
Continued…….. There is no social discrimination in serving Mid-Day Meal: • In 100% of the schools menu was displayed at the appropriate place. • The cooked meals are transported from the centralized kitchen to schools by trucks. • As schools are engaged only in distribution of food among the students. Cook-cum-helpers (Ayas) have been engaged in schools for serving the meals and washing the utensils. All the AYAS are females majority of them belonging to SC/OBC/ Minority Communities.
Continued… • The availability of water has been confirmed in all the 40 schools. Water coolers with water filters installed in all schools. • In 87.5% of the schools, the teachers have been found to be reminding and prompting students to wash their hand before taking food. All the schools have been making deliberate efforts to serve food in an organized way. • The MDM scheme has been supervised at the Central and Schools level. There are many high officials involved and assigned with this responsibility.
AREAS OF CONCERN • In 5 schools, students indicated absence of variety. This kind of response of students is due to the rice based menu provided by the centralized kitchens to these schools on 4-5 days per week (3 madrassas and schools of Sec-45, GSSS, GPS-II, Manimjara). • In 2 schools of the outer circuits of the city, more cleaning is required in the classrooms after the meals. • The participation by parents, SMC members and the community has not been quantified. However, their participation has been assessed through discussion, observation at the time of field visits and interviews. The participation level of SMC members and parents to supervise mid day meal varies from school to school. The data collected from sample schools indicates that there is no roaster of parents formally prepared for supervision. Instructions have been issued to all concerned to take necessary corrective measures in regard to above.
FUTURE PLANNING Implementation of IVRS for MDM MIS through service provider to be empanelled by GOI. Training of Officials Study of MDM Scheme by the third party. Chandigarh Administration has decided to construct 10 Cluster based kitchen sheds. Construction of 7 Cluster based kitchen sheds have been completed.
