Kolkata: The State Government is now extending the popular ‘Ekushe Annapurna’ scheme of food servings to the districts. They are available from the Annapurna mobile outlets run by the Bengal Government agency, Benfish, and come at just Rs 21, hence the name. They are available from 12 pm to 3 pm.
‘Ekushe Annapurna’ is the brainchild of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Each plate consists of a 50 gram (g) piece of fish, 100 gms rice, 75 g masoor dal and 50 g vegetables.
Now the government has decided to extend the availability of these delicious and popular servings to the districts. Twenty-one mobile vans are run in Kolkata. Now the government would run 29 more vans, in different district towns.
Besides the price, the close scrutiny on the quality of the foods is also a reason for the huge success.
