Share

Shiv Sena led Maharashtra govt has launched the Rs. 10 plate scheme on January 26, on a pilot basis. The much awaited Shiv Bhojan scheme is aimed at providing a meal to those with low financial conditions.

 

The plates or thalis will be available at designated places or canteens during a stipulated time in all districts.

 

In Mumbai, the Shiv Bhojan scheme was launched by district guardian minister Aslam Sheikh at the civic-run Nair hospital.

 

A similar center was inaugurated by Tourism minister and Mumbai suburban district guardian minister Aditya Thackeray.

 

The thali would be available from 12 noon to 2 pm and would serve at least 500 thalis per day.

 

While the Shiv Bhojan scheme gained praises from many, a few demanded to extend the timing.

 

“The goal of this scheme is to provide affordable and quality food to all irrespective of caste, creed, religion”, tweeted Thackeray after the inauguration.
