NEW DELHI: Doorstep delivery of dry ration kits will continue rather than hot cooked mid-day meals till 100 per cent attendance is achieved in Delhi government schools, according to officials here.

"Right now, there is only 50 per cent attendance in schools and so, if cooked mid-day meals are resumed, all students will not be benefited from the scheme. As soon as 100 per cent attendance is achieved, serving of cooked mid-day meals will begin," an official said.
