Millets (Shree Anna) on the menu: BIPP study on Odisha highlights success mantra

Mar 07, 2024

In light of the increased focus on millets (Shree Anna), the Bharti Institute of Public Policy’s recent detailed study on the Odisha Millets Mission underlined how Odisha, through its multi-pronged and pro-active approach, brought millets back to farms and menus.

A story in Hindu Business Line examined the BIPP study and highlighted that the State government introduced millets in the Public Distribution System (PDS) and the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS). The Niti Aayog, the Central planning agency, liked this idea and felt that other States could take a cue.
