Raje launched the scheme by feeding a morsel to a Dalit and Gurjar woman at Jaipur Municipal Corporation campus. The CM also enjoyed “bajre ki roti, lassun ki chutney and besan gate ki sabzi” along with the two women.

Under this scheme, good quality hygienic breakfast, lunch and dinner, will be offered from Rs 5 to Rs 8. They will be offered to rickshaw pullers, auto drivers, security guards, working women, labourers and the elderly.

The subsidises food will cost the government around Rs 23.70 for a meal and Rs 21.70 for breakfast.

The government will accept cashless payments for them.

In its first phase, the Rajasthan government has introduced 80 vehicles to cover headquarters of 12 districts — Jaipur, Jhalawar, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Ajmer, Kota, Bikaner, Bharatpur, Dungarpur, Banswara, Pratapgarh and Baran. The government aims to take the scheme to all districts of the state.

The government said the vans will provide food cooked by staff trained in hospitality.

Earlier, Jayalalithaa had launched a similar scheme to help the poor get quality nutritious food at subsidised prices. The canteens provide idli for just Re 1; sambar rice for Rs. 5 and curd rice for Rs. 3. Later, the canteens also added Pongal in the breakfast menu. It made the state’s staple meals affordable for all. It meant that if you have Rs 13 in your pocket, you can have two square meals a day.

The meals at Amma Canteens are available to all, and by not tagging the ration card as an eligibility criteria, the Amma Unavagams are helping rewrite many household budgets.
