Bengaluru civic authorities will offer free mid-day meals for the elderly
The Bengaluru municipal authorities have announced their budget for the year 2018-19. The good news is that they have many schemes for senior citizens living in the city.
Among the many schemes is a mid-day meal scheme for senior citizens. The scheme had been suggested earlier. Due to non-payment of pending food bills by the civic authorities, the proposal was rejected.
The mid-day meal scheme for senior citizens will come into effect in 2018.
More than 50 senior citizens from each ward will be covered under this mid-day meal scheme for senior citizens. There are also plans to set up dialysis centres for senior citizens.
