The Karnataka government's plan to maintain eggs on the mid-day meal menus of seven backward districts in the coming academic year has been authorized by the Centre. Many religious diviners in the state were against the pilot program. Only Raichur, Yadgir, Bidar, Kalburgi, Koppal, Bellary, and Vijayapura would benefit from the expansion. The Centre has instructed the state government to supply the eggs by the third quarter of 2022-23.
