Indira Canteens to dish out more quantity for same price

Bengaluru: Come Feb. 1, Indira Canteens across the State will serve extra quantity of breakfast at the same subsidised price. Chief Minister Siddharamaiah has directed the authorities to serve   more quantity of breakfast  since there were public complaints.

According to regulars at the canteens, they were forced to buy two tokens to have their fill. Henceforth, they can look forward to a more sumptuous breakfast at the same price. However, the quantity of lunch and dinner will  remain unchanged.

The increase in quantity of breakfast will also apply to the 246 Indira canteens being set up at other taluk and district headquarters.

Currently, the canteens serve three Idlies weighing 150 gm, or Puliogare (300 gm), Khara Bath (200 gm),  Pongal (225 gm), Khichdi (200 gm), Chitranna (225 gm), Vangi Bath (225 gm) and Chow – Chow Bath (175 gms) depending on the breakfast  menu  for  the day.

From Feb. 1, the servings will be increased by nearly half. “The catering contractors had quoted Rs. 57 per day for one breakfast, one lunch and   one dinner.

A customer having all three meals at the canteen will be paying Rs. 25 and the remaining Rs. 32 per person is paid by the government.

Now that the quantity will be increased and the additional cost will be borne by Government,’’ sources said.
