Pregnant women are not given nutritious food according to the menu

Ayodhya. Under the Janani Shishu Suraksha programme, orders to provide nutritious food to pregnant women are being ignored at community health centers in the district.
In most CHCs (Community Health Centres) food, snacks are not provided as per the prescribed menu and the bill is paid with the connivance of the departmental officials.
Claims for food and snacks provided to obstetricians at community health centers were exposed on Monday. Under the Janani Shishu Suraksha Yojana, if a pregnant woman is admitted to the hospital before or after delivery, there is a provision to provide free nutritious lunch, dinner and breakfast in the morning.
This facility is provided for two days in normal delivery and five days in case of cesarean delivery. For this, a contract has been made at the rate of Rs 90 per patient.
According to the terms of the contract, the contractor has to get two eggs/porridge/poha/bread with four slices and 10 grams of butter along with a glass of milk from 7 to 8:30 for this 90 rupees.
The meal consists of four rotis, pulses, seasonal vegetables, rice and salad / curd from one to two in the afternoon and four rotis, seasonal vegetables, rice and seasonal fruits (apple, orange, banana, etc.) / a glass of milk, but this menu is being ridiculed in most hospitals.
In most places, instead of two hundred milliliters of milk at breakfast, the job was done with tea. Besides milk, there is a provision to give eggs, porridge, poha, bread and butter in exchange for breakfast, but in most places only tea and bread are given.
Salad and yogurt can hardly be served for lunch. At the same time, vegetables, roti, rice are not available in most of the three places at night. Along with this, seasonal fruits and milk are also not given as per the rules.
This arrangement is not for a day, however, the hospital officials never see the reality of this arrangement and forward the bill for payment.
They had stopped supplying food to some hospitals due to non-payment of vendors for several months. Therefore, alternative arrangements are being made, but it has been directed to provide food as per the menu. Action will be taken after investigation. -Doctor. Ajay Raja, CMO, Ayodhya
