1.1 .1.Brief History on Mid Day Meal Programme: -

          Education plays a vital and important role in the life of an individual. It

   aims to prepare and develop the individual physically, mentally and spiritually

   to lead a quality life. Education is a process through which a person can attain

   the necessary competencies and skills to face the challenges of life. According

   to the 93rd Constitutional Amendment, primary education is a Fundamental

   Right (Article 21A). Four important factors are identified for achieving the

   goals of Universalization of Elementary and Secondary Education. They are

   Access, Enrolment, Retention and Achievement.


          Various schemes were implemented in the primary education sector by

   the Government to reach the most disadvantaged population and thereby to

   achieve the above goals. Access to Primary Education is being provided

   through massive programmes like District Primary Education Programme,

   Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (Rajiv Vidya Mission) to all such of those children who are

   involved in physical labour, street children, migrating children etc.,. Inspite of

   this, a few children are still deprived of Primary Education due to inability of

   the parents to send their children to school due to their poor economical

   status. For these parents, sending their children to school means - incurring

   extra financial burden on them.


          That being the attitude of the parents the only way of bringing them to

   school is to take care of their food and nutritional needs.

   Without satisfying this basic need, needs of higher order are difficult to reach.

   The most important de-motivating factor in this aspect is the poor nutritional

   status of children. Hence supplementing the required nutrition should be the

   priority to draw their attention to education.




                                           1
       Keeping this basic truth in view, the Government of Andhra Pradesh

introduced the Mid Day Meal Programme in 1982 experimentally, in all the

Abhyudaya Pradhamica Patasalalu. Due to certain constraints like inadequate

finances, this programme could not be sustained.


       On 15 August 1995 Government of India launched the National

Programme for Nutritional Support to Primary Education. As per this

Programme each child was provided with, 3 kgs of rice per month for 10

months in a year. The Government of Andhra Pradesh implemented the

same in the State.


       Consequent to the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s direction in 2001 to

provide Cooked Meal to children, the State Government of Andhra Pradesh

launched in the cooked Mid Day Meal Programme in 2003 to all Primary School

children in Government,      Local body    and Government     Aided Schools.

Subsequently it was extended to children enrolled under Education Guarantee

Scheme (EGS), Alternative & Innovative Education (AIE) Centres and Madrasas /

Maqtabs.


Objectives of the Mid Day Meal Programme:


       i)     To improve the Nutritional Status of children enrolled in classes

              I-V in Government, Local body, Government aided schools, EGS

              and AIE Centres including Madarsas/ Maqtabs.


       ii)    To motivate children belonging to disadvantaged sections to

              attend primary schools regularly and help them concentrate on

              school and classroom activities.


       iii)   To provide Nutritional Support to children of primary stage in

              drought affected areas in summer vacation, thereby ensuring

              their continued interest in schooling.

         Initially the GOI has fixed the Unit cost as Rs.60,000/-. But later on, the

Government          vide   memo   No.11694/Pro.I/A2/2007             Dt.08.10.2007       has

enhanced the unit cost from Rs.60,000/- to Rs.75,000/- by reducing the no.

of units.

         So far the Government has released only first year allocation amount of

Rs.103.20.81 crores out of which an amount of Rs.19.15 crores has been

spent. The balance amount is still available with GOAP.


                                              27
                As per the latest progress report, 5461 works have been grounded and

      3077 works have been completed and about 2987 works are at various levels,

      which are programmed to complete during this year i.e. 2009-10.


    Procedure for getting Kitchen Sheds

                The GOAP has established an exclusive corporation for executing the

    civil works of School Education Dept. All these construction of Kitchen Sheds

    have been executed by the School Management Committees under the technical

    supervision of the Engineers of APEWIDC.

    Other facilities:

                To improve the general ambience in the schools the following items of

      works are being taken up under various schemes:

                Construction of 1,14,871 toilet units in schools with an estimated cost

      of Rs. 229.74 crores has been taken up Panchayat Raj Department against

      which the construction of 64,552 Toilet units are completed.


2.7. Procedure of procurement of kitchen devices from:
         (a) Funds released under the Midday Meal Programme and
         (b) Other sources

      (a) Procedure of Procurement of Kitchen Devices:

                Funds sanctioned under the head of Kitchen devices by the Govt. of

      India under the Mid Day Meal Programme were released to the Districts as per

      the requirement. The District level chairman of MDM Programme followed the

      Procurement processors i.e. calling the Tenders, finalization of cost under the

      chairmanship of District Purchase Committee of concern district.

                The selected firm has supplied the devices at the School level as per

      indent.

      (b) Other Sources:-

                NGOs like NAANDI, ISKCON and Akshaya Patra foundation have

      procured and setup-centralized kitchens with necessary infrastructural

      facilities and kitchen devices by themselves only.

                                              28
2.8. Capacity building and training conducted for different categories of persons

      involved in the Midday Meal Programme under Programmes.

             Midday Meal is a flagship of the Government and large number officials

        ranging from Mandal to State level are involved. There is therefore a need to

        conduct   training   programme     in   different   aspects   of   Mid-day   Meal

        Programme such as Monitoring attendance of children, maintenance of

        proper records, processing of different Data etc.

             There is a need to prepare Midday Meal under hygienic conditions and

        to maintain high standards of quality. Hence the members of the Gram

        Panchayat, Mothers Committee, School Management Committees and

        members of the Self Help Groups are made to understand the significance of

        Mid day Meals Programme and to prepare food maintaining high standards

        of hygiene. Ultimately it is to ensure that the targeted children enjoy the

        recipes, separate training programme is planned for developing modules in

        collaboration with Andhra Pradesh Agricultural Rural Development (APARD).

        In addition to this APARD is taking the responsibility of organizing the

        programme of Training of Trainers (TOT). Separate budgetary requirements

        for this purpose will be submitted to Central/State Government for

        consideration. Without adequate efforts in this direction the feeling of

        ownership of programme has not been generated due to which public and

        also officials perform the duties as routine.

             Hence Keeping in view of the aspects training programme was

        conducted to the implementing                agencies at the beginning of the

        programme in the year 2003-04. Some implementing agencies which could

        not cope up with the programme have been replaced. Since training was

        given (6) years ago it is felt that there is a need to conduct reorientation

        programme which will be taken up in the ensuing year.




                                                29
2.9. Management Information System at School, Village /Gram Panchayat, Block,
      District and State level.

     Maintenance of MIS at School level:-

            At present various records like Students attendance, number of

       beneficiaries, stock and utilization of rice lifted are being maintained and

       HMs submit Monthly report to the MEOs every Month. The Mandal

       Educational Officers collect from Schools and consolidate the particulars and

       furnish the Mandal level information to the Deputy Educational Officer who in

       turn sends the Divisional level information to the District Educational Officer.

       The District Educational Officer sends the District level information to the

       State level. Software was developed prior to the issuance of the Guidelines

       by the Government of India. However this is being revised in view of the

       Guidelines, 2006.

             Mostly Women Self Help Groups are involved in this programme. NGOs

      and other service oriented Organizations are also encouraged to take part in

      this endeavor.

    Transparency in the selection of Implementing Agencies:

      agencies in the entire district.

             Generally Women Self help groups do the cooking by themselves,

      however in a few cases Cooks are engaged by the implementing agencies

      themselves.


2.11.Measures taken to rectify

        a) Inter – district low and uneven utilization of food grains and cooking

           cost.

           The heads of the Institutions are requested to furnish the actual

           enrollment, attendance no. of children taken meals and also the opening

           balances of food grains in the schools. The exercise is going on.

        b) Intra-District mismatch in utilization of food grains and cooking cost.

           The District Educational Officers are requested to reconcile the figures

           with regard to food grains utilized in their districts with the figures of the

           Civil Supplies Department at district level, this has been under process.

                                             32
   C) Delay in delivering cooking cost at school level.

           In case of delay in paying cooking cost the Mandal Educational Officers

   are alternative arrangements are payment of the cooking cost at school level.


2.12.Details of Evaluation studies conducted and summary of its findings.

           M.V. foundation has conducted Social Audit of the Mid Day Meal

   Scheme 261 School in five districts spread over in A.P. They are Adilabad,

   Mahabubnagar, Kurnool, Prakasam and Vizinagaram.

           SPIU Education conducted social audit of Mid Day Meal programme in

   five districts of Andhra Pradesh. The audit is done by SPIU in collaboration with

   four identified agencies, MV Foundation, SWC Consultancy, APARD and

   Foundation for Rural & Social Development. M.V. Foundation acted as the

   nodal agency for the project. Social Audit is conducted in 50 schools in each

   district:

           a) To assess the present status of performance of the scheme.

           b) Create awareness among the beneficiaries i.e., children and

               parents about the mid day meal programme provided in the

               school.

           c) Train village social audit teams to carry on the process of

               social audit.

           Social Audit is being conducted in the five districts Adilabad, Kurnool,

   Prakasam, Vizianagaram and Mahaboobnagar with the support of MV

   Foundation, AP Academy of Rural Development (APARD), SWC Consultancy and

   Foundation for Rural & Social Development In the year 2007-2008, Social

   Audit was conducted in two mandals in each district, covering 25 schools in

   each mandal. The total number of schools covered by all the four

   organizations is 267. As the enrollment of children is low in some schools, a

   few schools from neighbouring mandals are selected.




                                           33
TRAINING
       Training programme was conducted in the selected six districts for the

Mandal Resource Persons (MRPs) and Supervisors, who in turn were selected by

the resource agencies to facilitate the social audit process. The training was

conducted in two phases between 7th and 15th of February 2008. Overall

1650 members were trained. Each batch received a three day residential

training input, with resource persons drawn from the Government of Andhra

Pradesh, APARD, Centre for Good Governance and M.V. Foundation.

Attendance Verification:-
       Data was collected from the attendance register and mid day meal

register (where available) on the officially recorded number of children joining

the mid day meal. A headcount was then conducted during lunchtime to

actually verify the number of children actually present during the meal. If there

was a discrepancy between the number reported in the register and the actual

number of children eating, the team identified the children who were marked

present but did not eat and spoke to them to understand the reasons for their

absence.

Rice

       The stock registers related to the rice used for mid day meal

programme were checked and this data compared with the number of children

actually eating the mid day meal. The process of delivery of rice from the

godowns to the dealer, and then from the dealer to the school and finally from

the school to the cooking agency was carefully studied by the team. This was

done by looking at the stock registers, record of daily use of rice and talking

to the headmaster and the cooking agency. In instances where a discrepancy

was detected, the team also spoke to the dealer to understand the

performance gaps.

Infrastructure and Hygiene

       The Mothers Association team observed the facilities available for the

mid day meal. The availability of a kitchen shed, utensils for cooking and

serving, drinking water facilities etc. were all recorded. Also, issues such as

                                       34
place for children to eat, personnel to serve the meal and maintenance of the

place were also studied. The meal process was observed to see whether the

entire process from cooking to eating was being carried out in a hygienic

manner.

Quality of the meal

       The team paid special attention to the quality of the mid day meal.

Investigations were made into whether children were being served a varied

menu, whether the food served was nutritious enough to include adequate

quantities of pulses, oils and vegetables. The issue of whether eggs and fruits

were being given was also checked. The opinion of the children on the taste of

the meal was also elicited.

Survey of Children

       In each village a survey was also conduced with a sample of 30 children

to verify the information in the attendance records and whether the children

really ate the mid day meal. These children were also quizzed on the

functioning of the mid day meal scheme.

Village Social Audit Report

       After the above activities were conducted, the social audit team

prepared a village social audit report and presented it in a Gram Sabha. The

findings reported in the Gram Sabha pertained to all the aspects of the mid

day meal scheme.

Mandal meetings/public hearings

       At the end of the above social audit process in all the villages, a mandal

level meeting was held in all the mandals. While in Adilabad and Kurnool these

mandal meetings were held in the form of public hearings including

participation from mandal officials in the other districts, a review meeting with

all the village social audit teams was held at the mandal level and findings

discussed. In all the mandals a public hearing at the mandal level is being

planned for after the second round of social audit is completed.




                                       35
Impact of the study:

       The findings of the social audit were shared in gram sabha and also at

mandal level meetings involving all the stakeholders including government

representatives.

   1. In many schools, as a result of the detailed monitoring of the

       attendance marking, the registers began to reflect reality.

   2. In a large number of schools where the rice was stored in the agency or

       dealer’s house, rice is now stored in the school and each day the rice

       was allocated based on the actual attendance of children.

   3. The quality of the meal is greatly improved in most of the schools. Eggs

       and vegetables were introduced.

   4. Provision for drinking water was made in many schools where it was not

       available either by repairing existing tanks/taps or by providing large

       water containers to store water in the school.

   5. Communities contributed for the plates of the children.

   6. The headmasters got more involved in monitoring the meal.

   7. Overall, the community seemed more interested in the Mid Day Meal

       and this seemed to have an influence on the quality of the meal.

Recommendations:

   1. The rice for the mid day meal should be directly supplied to the school.

       The role of the dealer as a middleman in this must be removed. The

       headmaster should be made responsible for the rice and maintaining

       the records related to this.

   2. Cooking agencies must be paid in time. A system must be put in place

       to ensure that they are paid in advance and the bills are settled later.

   3. Norms must be available on how the conversion cost is to be used.

       Studies must be conducted to assess how this amount should be spent

       on different items (pulses, vegetables, eggs, oil, condiments etc.) to

       ensure a quality meal. There should also be a provision of the wage

       cost of the cooks in this. Other systems of payments such as paying the

                                       36
      cooks a fixed salary wage, seen in many states in the country, may be

      considered.

   4. Proper guidelines with regard to a weekly menu, cost norms etc. must

      be made available publicly displayed in all the schools.

   5. The headmasters and the cooking agencies must be given a training

      aspects related to organizing and managing the mid day meal.

   6. Teachers must supervise the conduct of the mid day meal. In all the

      schools where the headmasters were involved in the monitoring of the

      meal, it was seen that the quality of the meal was better.

   7. A proper supportive supervision system at the mandal level should be

      established. Currently, there is no monitoring of the mid day meal

      scheme by the MEOs. They are only involved in the paper work and

      payment of meals but not in ensuring the quality of the meals. For this,

      systems in other states such as the existence of noon meal organizers

      and supervisions in Tamil Nadu may be studied.

   8. Finally, an institutional mechanism must be put in place for the

      community to monitor the mid day meal.

   9. A proper study should be conducted of the roles, responsibilities and

      implementation at the State, district and mandal level as this might also

      throw light on some of the gaps such as delay in payments.


Findings:

Many people in the community are coming forward to volunteer time and

energy to be part of this process. It was also heartening to see that the Mid

Day Meal Scheme is one of the few programmes of the Government which

seems to be reaching even the remotest of villages.

        analysis      of   strength   and    weaknesses       of   the   programme
        implementation.

            The M.V. Foundation has conducted Social Audit of the Mid Day Meal

       Scheme in five districts of A.P. covering two mandals in each district and 25

       schools in each Mandal 261 schools have been surveyed by the Social Audit

       team (2008) constituted in the respective villages. The following are some of

       the recommendations of the study:


          1. The rice for the Mid Day Meal should be directly supplied to the

              School. The head master should be made responsible for the rice and

              maintaining the records.


          2. Cooking agencies must be paid in time.


          3. Norms must be made available on how the conversion cost is to be

              used.


          4. Proper guidelines with regard to a weekly menu, cost norms etc. must

              be made available to all the schools.


          5. The head masters and the cooking agencies must be given training.


          6. Teachers must supervise the conduct of the Mid Day Meal. In all the

              schools where the head masters were involved in the monitoring of

              the meal, the quality of the meal was better.


          7. A proper supportive supervision system at the mandal level should be

              established. Currently, there is no monitoring of the Mid Day Meal

              scheme by the MEOs. They are only involved in the paper work and

              payment of meals but not in ensuring the quality of the meals.


          8. A proper study should be conducted in order to know and refresh the

              roles, responsibilities of the personnel involved in the implementation

                                            44
         of MDM Scheme at State, District, Mandal and School level for taking

         appropriate measures for better running of the scheme.


     9. The Mid Day Meal should also be used as an opportunity to spread

         nutrition and health education among children.


Impact of Mid Day Meal Scheme such as increase in enrollment,

attendance, retention, learning level etc. reduction in drop-out , increase in

nutritional status etc.,

       There is of course little increase in enrollment and nutritional status of

these children. The dropout rate in schools
