Bhubaneswar: From January onwards, people can avail dinner at 54 Aahar Centres near various hospitals at Rs 5. Now, only lunch is being served at these centres.
On April 1, 2015, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched ‘Aahar’ cheap meal scheme for providing subsidised food to urban poor.
The populist programme aimed at providing meal at Rs 5 to the urban poor across the State.
The Aahar scheme is being sponsored by State run Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) – Odisha Mining Corporation (OMC) in Cuttack and Bhubaneswar, Odisha Power Generation Corporation (OPGC) in Rourkela and Odisha Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (IDCO) – in Sambalpur.
