The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has put out an advertisement, and as the first step, it has asked the people to suggest a logo and design for the canteen for the new scheme planned on the lines of Amma Canteen in Tamil Nadu.
The Namma canteen promises breakfast at Rs 5 and lunch at Rs 10. Soon, there will be an official announcement on the scheme. The people will have to send designs of the logo for the Namma canteen within 15 days from now.
The final decision will be taken once all the suggestions have been received. The best logo and design can fetch you Rs 1 lakh and Rs 2 lakh for designing the canteen space. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah himself will give away the prize money to the winners.
This scheme aims at providing breakfast and lunch to people from the economically poor background at a minimal price. The scheme will be introduced in all the 198 wards. Rs 100 crore has been allotted for the programme in the state Budget.
Official sources said that these canteens would have LED Bulbs, CCTV cameras and Wi-fi connection.
Namma Canteen functional from June 1?
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has orally instructed the officials to start the Namma Canteen from June 1, said sources from the government. Thus soon after the logo and canteen design is finalised, the work will start and will be completed without any delay.
