SC Clears Deck For Implementation Of Nutrition Scheme

The Supreme Court today cleared the decks for implementation of supplementary nutrition scheme by training the Self Helf Groups (SHGs) //with an aim to take over the anganwadis from the NGOs in the national capital.

A Vacation Bench comprising Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice C K Thakker vacated its May 12 order by which the implementation of the scheme was held up.

Pursuant to the apex court order that no contractors would be used for the supply of nutrition in anganwadis, Delhi Government framed a detailed scheme for capacity builiding of SHGs to prepare and supply supplementary nutrition under the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) programme.

The scheme envisaged that within 27 months the SHGs would be trained and would completely take over the running of the anganwadis from the NGO.

According to the scheme, pregnant and lactating mothers were to be trained and involved in the programme to bring their children to the anganwadis.

The scheme was held up for two months as three of the registered Non Profit Organisations, which had applied for training the SHGs, had taken legal recourse after their application was rejected by the Delhi Government.

The application of Ekta Shakti Foundation, Surya Society and Jay Gee Society was not accepted as the Committee of experts found that they were not registered for a period of three years as per the requirement.

Delhi Government by an affidavit had alleged that the three NPOs had approached the court with malafide intention as they were catering contractors having commercial interests and were trying to take up the project in the garb of NGO.
