23 Mission Findings Assam - Continuous disruption in serving of meals in most of the schools of Nagaon District,, due to mismatch in availability of food grains and cooking cost. Rajasthan -Delay of 2-4 months in payment of cooking cost in Tonk; in Kota attendance in all the schools was between 40 and 55%.

25 Social Audit, Andhra Pradesh Each gunny bag weighs 3-4 Kg less than the required 50 Kg Poor quality rice is served in the meals. Mostly rice is broken & filled with stones & worms. Many children complained of stomach ache because of this rice. There is a mismatch between the closing balance and opening balance in rice stock. Rice spent is shown as more as compared to actual consumption. Singareni mandal - In 20 schools there are 41 CCHs working as per records, but 6 CCHs are benami. Toilets are non- functional. 25

28 Issues in Punjab – Identified by JRM Disruption in the serving of MDM in Ludhiana due to non- availability of foodgrains in the month of May- July. Engagement of lesser number of cook-cum-helpers than the norms in Ludhiana district.

31 31 Reasons for poor utilisation of funds Delay in the flow of funds (at various stages) Long process of identification of potential beneficiaries under various schemes (e.g. from BPL families, or SC/ ST, etc.) Capital expenditure (such as construction of schools) requires preparation of estimates and floating of tenders, which takes time Often estimates need to be sanctioned by a competent authority who is not locally available, and files travel up and down Government machinery is used to working in a sequential order, whereas quick completion of projects requires undertaking several activities concurrently Lack of adequate number of staff to implement schemes
