The Self Help Groups, Women Cooperative societies, registered Mahila mandals while interacting with the Member of Parliament during his constituency tour recently to Little Andaman and other areas, alleged  that despite submission of bills of Mid-day meals by the first week of every month as per terms and conditions stipulated in the award, the department  of education is not clearing the bills since past 6 to 7 months due to poor monitoring of concerned authorities of education department and as a result, the self help groups and societies supplying the mid day meals are facing financial constraints.  Under such circumstances, Mr. Ray has been compelled to take up the matter with the Lt. Governor and requested to issue necessary direction to the school authorities for timely payment of mid-day meals bills to the Self Help Groups and other societies every month in time.
