It shall be operationalised latest by March 1, according to a circular issued on Saturday by AIIMS Director Dr M Srinivas. The government has decided to celebrate 2023 as the "International Year of Millets" to make it a people's movement so that the Indian millets, recipes and value-added products are promoted globally, the circular said.
As millets are high in protein, fibre, essential vitamins and minerals, they are renowned as a nutritional powerhouse. In addition to a plethora of health benefits, millets are also good for the environment with a low water and input requirement.
The "International Year of Millets" stands to provide a unique opportunity to increase global production, ensure efficient processing and consumption, promote better utilisation of crop rotations and encourage better connectivity throughout food systems to promote millets as a key component of the food basket, the circular said.
"In line with the Government of India's impetus, a 'Millet Canteen' shall be commissioned at AIIMS, New Delhi on the second floor of the central cafeteria," it added.
