Despite the earnest efforts of both the Central and State governments, the implementation of MDM in Jharkhand has not fully achieved its objectives due to lack of funding. The scheme requires investment of more money so that it can reach its optimum level. The research also highlights improper management in dealing with the mid-day meal scheme. Looking at this, the paper delves into the crucial issues related to MDM in the context of the Jharkhand state, emphasizing the importance of this scheme.</em></p> Dr Sujit Kumar Choudhary Copyright (c) 2024 Management and Finance Bulletin 2024-04-07 2024-04-07 2 1 1 6
