Department of education has spin off a new branch called Serv Shiksha Abhiyan which was later renamed to Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan.
Ministry of HRD, Govt of India discovered that, schools run by Govt. in rural areas as well as urban areas are having less representation of students.
Less attendance could be due to various factors at different geographical areas. One thing was common that the parents of such students were having weaker economy and they wanted their children to be bread earners in their early childhood and did not send their children to school.
Mid day meal scheme was launched to provide nutritious to the children of economically weaker section parents at school.
This scheme eases out the pressure on the pocket of parents and children concentrate on their studies.
Mid Day Meal scheme is provided through NGO or schools are given money to cook food and serve fresh to the children.
It was observed that attendance of the student increased in the school and performance of children enhanced due to extended study period.
