Aadhaar-linked mid-day meal scheme to check malpractices: Prakash Javadekar

Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar on Monday praised the government's move to link Aadhaar card with mid-day meal scheme. He said that it has been initiated to check malpractices and bring in transparency. Javadekar added the motive is to ensure that children are not devoid of mid-day meal. They only want to check malpractices, the bogus registration of students and siphoning away funds of mid-day meal scheme.
