Mid Day Meal Program
The Mid-Day Meal Scheme is a popular school meal program in India. It involves provision of lunch free of cost to school children on all working days. The key objectives of the program are: protecting children from classroom hunger, increasing school enrolment and attendance, improving socialization among children belonging to all castes, addressing malnutrition, and social empowerment through provision of employment. Government, however, wanted to monitor the effectiveness of this scheme. A solution over Super caller using Knowlus APIs generates Interactive Voice Response (IVR)-based phone calls to over 1.5 lakhs teachers between 10 o’clock to 12 noon daily in all 72 districts of Uttar Pradesh. It asks for the number of students for which the meal has been cooked that day. The teacher responds simply by punching the number of students on his phone. The data is automatically fed to the server set up in Delhi which is connected with the website of Mid Day Meal Authority of UP. Officials who have access to the system can check the data anytime.
