Indira Rasoi, which was established in Rajasthan to give wholesome meals at Rs 8 per plate, is popular with tourists.
Parth Sarthy, a tourist from Chennai who had travelled to Jaipur with his family, noticed a banner advertising “Food for Rs 8” while at the Jal Mahal. He didn’t think so. “The taste was of homemade food served and it was hygienic. It is praiseworthy. It is a good scheme for the Ashok Gehlot government. Such a scheme should be there in all the states,” he said.
It should be noted that the Chief Minister launched the Indira Rasoi programme throughout the state with the motto “No One Sleeps Hungry.” The programme began on August 20, 2020, with 358 kitchens in 213 urban local bodies, and each plate had 250 g of chapati and pickle in addition to 100 g of dal and 100 g of veggies.
The goal was to have 1,000 kitchens, and as of right now, 951 of them are operational. The government is providing a subsidy of Rs 17 per plate, and it is anticipated that this programme will cost Rs 250 crore annually. “Life will change with Indira Rasoi Yojana … this is the promise of the Rajasthan government,” the state government tweeted.
From Madhya Pradesh, a group of women travelled to Rajasthan to explore. They concurred, saying it resembled homemade meals. More than 70 million thalis have been served under Indira Rasoi. By the end of this fiscal year, the state government has set a goal of 138.1 million thalis.
