    The Central government has asked schools in Telangana to give students Ragi Java, a nutritious supplement made from millet, three times a week starting next year. This will be provided to primary and upper primary students in Government and Local Body schools. The State government has proposed to give Ragi Java to 16,82,887 students across the State for 110 days with an outlay of Rs.2776.76 lakh.

    The Board recently approved an outlay of Rs.1618.57 lakh (Central share of Rs.971.14 lakh and State share of Rs.647.43 lakh) for 110 days, and the State will need to find the remaining funds of Rs.1,158.19 lakh from its own resources. The Board has suggested that schools should also serve millets to students once a week in accordance with the UN General Assembly’s resolution to declare 2023 as the ‘International Year of Millets’.
