CM Shri Chouhan transfers honorarium of Rs 42 crores to the accounts of cooks

Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan today transferred Rs 42 lakh honorarium of the month of April to the bank accounts of 2 lakh 10 thousand cooks of the state under the mid day meal programme from Mantralaya through single click. Additional Chief Secretary Panchayat and Rural Development Shri Manoj Shrivastava, Director Public Relations Shri O.P. Shrivastava were present on this occasion.

Honorarium amount being sent every month

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan told the cooks of Mid-day Meal Scheme through video conferencing that due to Corona crisis, children are being given money and food grain instead of cooked mid-day meal. Hence you do not have to cook meals for them. Despite this, the government is taking care of you and an honorarium of Rs 2 thousand is being transferred to your bank accounts every month.

Make people aware of Corona

The Chief Minister said that our cooks should make people aware about Corona in their village and areas. They should urge them that to maintain at least 2 yards distance from each other to defeat Corona. Everyone must wear masks, wash hands frequently, take care of hygiene and must not gather at public places. Labourers who have returned to their villages from other places must remain indoors for 14 days and stay separate from other family members. A little precaution can defeat Corona.
