Mid-Day Meal Scheme - Edukemy Current Affairs


In News:

The Central government  has recently increased the cost of cooking for midday meals.

About the News:

  • Ministry of Finance has recently raised the mid-day meal per child cooking cost by 9.6% in pursuance to the demands by the school authorities and food rights activists across the country for more funds to run the scheme.
  • At present, the scheme has 11.8 crore student beneficiaries across 11.35 Lakh schools across the country.
  • With new norms, the allocation at the primary level and upper primary levels will be Rs 5.45 and Rs 8.17, respectively.

Major highlights:

  • Price share: Under the scheme, renamed as PM Poshan in 2021, most components including cooking cost are split in a 60:40 ratio between the Union government and the states and UTs with legislatures, and 90:10 with the Northeastern states, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

  • More funds: Since the cost of foodgrains is borne entirely by the Centre, it will have to shell out an additional amount of Rs 660 crore in 2022-23, while the states will spend Rs 400 crore more than what was sanctioned in the annual budget to implement the revised cooking cost.
  • Cooking cost: It includes the prices of ingredients such as pulses, salt, vegetables, condiments, and fuel needed to prepare cooked meals.
  • Black marketing: The current supply of LPG isn’t adequate, forcing schools to purchase from black market at inflated rates which increases the cooking cost.
  • Inflation: The inflation on pulses which is the major source of protein in hot-cooked meals provided under the scheme also increases the effective cost.
  • New norms: The government is likely to devise a new ‘PM Poshan Index’ to track the change in prices of items in the mid-day meal basket and revise the cooking cost annually.

Mid-day meal programme:

  • History: The concept of providing meals to students was first introduced in 1925 in India and Tamil Nadu was the first state in India to introduce a noon meal programme in primary schools followed by Gujarat, Kerala and other states.
  • Pan-India scheme: The Tamil Nadu model was taken up as a national scheme called Nutrition Support to Primary Education Scheme or Mid-Day Meal programme which was launched in 1995, in 2,408 blocks across the country for providing one meal per day to students in primary school (Class I to V).
  • Universal scheme: The scheme was made universal in all public schools in 2001 after the Supreme Court’s directions and the scope scheme was extended to cover the students of Upper Primary (Class VI to VIII) in 2007.
  • Implementation of scheme: The scheme is guided by the MHRD in the centre and departments like education department or women and child development department or the Panchayati Raj department in states.
  • Objective: The scheme attempts to address the issues of hunger and education in schools by serving hot cooked meals. It also aims to improve the nutritional status of children and improve enrolment, attendance and retention rates in schools and other education centres.
  • Beneficiary: According to MDM Scheme every child studying in primary and upper primary classes in government schools and government-aided schools like Alternative and Innovative Education (AIE) centres and Madrasas gets free lunch.
  • Ingredients: The meal comprises cooked rice or wheat (depending on the local staple), mixed with lentils or jaggery, and supplemented with oil, vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs or dessert at the local level.
  • Specified calories: The children in primary school must be provided with at least 450 calories with 12 grams of protein through MDM while the children in upper primary schools get 700 calories with 20 grams of protein.
  • Allocation: The children of primary classes are entitled to 100 grams of foodgrains, 20 grams of pulses, 50 grams of vegetables and 5 grams of oils and fats. While, the children of upper-primary schools are entitled to get 150 grams of foodgrains, 30 grams of pulses,7 5 grams of vegetables and 7.5 grams of oils and fats.
  • Importance: Mid-day meal programme has a positive impact on the learning outcomes as children tend to attend school more where mid-day meal is being served.
  • Infrastructural provisions: According to the MDM norms, the required infrastructure includes, a kitchen shed, cooking and serving utensils, cooking stoves and cooking fuel.
  • Remuneration: Each cook/helper is given an honorarium of Rs. 1000 per month and there has to be one helper/cook up to 25 children, two helpers up to 26-100 children with one extra helper with every addition of 100 children.
  • Contribution: While the implementation of the scheme rests with the state government, MDM is a centrally-sponsored scheme which implies that the central government provides more financial assistance for running the scheme than the contribution of the state governments.
  • Private Participation: The implementation of MDM is supported by some non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in various states under the public-private partnership with state government, for example, Akshaya Patra Foundation and ISKON among others.

WHO guidelines to tackle stress at Workplace


In News:

  • In order to address mental health issues within the global workforce, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) have released guidelines.

What is Work-related Stress?

  • Long hours, a demanding workload, job uncertainty, and disagreements with co-workers or bosses are just a few of the many factors that contribute to stress at work.
  • Its symptoms include reduced productivity at work, depression, anxiety, and difficulties w.r.t. sleeping.

Key Findings by WHO & ILO

  • According to the WHO, depression and anxiety are account for 12 billion lost workdays yearly, costing the global economy close to $1 trillion.
  • Only 35% of countries have national programs for the promotion of mental health at work in place, with 5% of working age population suffering from mental illness.
  • COVID-19 caused a 25 per cent increase in anxiety and despair, demonstrating how poorly governments anticipated its effects on mental health.
  • In 2020, governments worldwide spent only 2% of their health budgets on mental health, with lower-middle-income countries spending less than 1%.

Key Terms

Quiet Quitters

  • These are workers who decide to remain in their positions while pledging to perform only those duties related to their jobs and nothing else.

Quiet Hustlers

  • Quiet hustlers are those who experience a mismatch in expectations at their principal place of employment. They may quietly start a side business.

Associated Challenges

Mental Health impacts Productivity:

  • Poor mental health can impact a person's performance and productivity, but the individual's wellbeing is a sufficient motivation to take action.

Socio-economic Issues:

  • Broader socioeconomic issues, like inequality and discrimination, which have an impact on mental health, are accentuated by an unfavourable work culture.

Frequent Mobbing:

  • Bullying or psychological assault in the workplace, often known as mobbing, is one of the most frequent forms of harassment.

Other Challenges:

  • Inadequate Social Support
  • Inefficient Chances for Growth or Development
  • Low Pay
  • Uninteresting or Unchallenging Work
  • Overwhelming Workload
  • Having little authority over decisions pertaining to employment
  • Ambiguous Performance Expectations
  • Contrasting Demands

Way Forward

  • In order to prevent stressful work environments and support troubled employees, the WHO has recommended manager training.
  • To end stigma and social exclusion and make sure employees with mental health disorders feel protected and supported, there is a need to invest in redesigning the workplace.
  • Additionally, the guidelines recommended better methods for accommodating the needs of employees with mental health conditions and prescribed programs that encourage their return to work.
  • Additionally, it provided ways for those with serious mental illnesses to find paid employment. The recommendations emphasized the importance of taking steps to protect emergency, medical, and humanitarian workers.

Editorial of the day

Letting go of a chance to democratise telecom services: The Hindu


Essence - The article highlights that the recent draft of Telecommunication Bill 2022 lacks the necessary democratization of the system and has a colonial legacy that can act as a hurdle in its development.

The licensing regime is still highly centralized and ignores the learnings that evolved in courts and other institutions of authority. It completely ignores the suggested reforms calling for keeping user rights as the cornerstone of the telecommunication sector.

Further, the bill keeps the over-the-top (OTT) services under the same laws as telecommunications. In doing so the bill has rejected the 2020 TRAI recommendations that were supportive of minimizing the regulatory burden on internet communication services. The bill also does not address the concerns around intercepting encrypted messages by authorized personnel and temporary suspension of the internet in cases of public emergency or safety.

Why should you read this Editorial?

  • To understand the shortcomings in the laws concerning the regulation of telecommunication services and OTT platforms in India.
  • To understand the necessary changes that are needed to further secure digital privacy, the right to free speech (owing to access to the internet), and the right to choice (usage of OTT platforms) with respect to telecommunication.
