AbstractPrimary Education means education that is first formally imparted to children. Primary education is imparted in two types of schools- Primary school and upper primary school. In 1937, the outline of basic education was presented by Mahatma Gandhi in Vardha conference. It is currently known as primary education. Various commissions and schemes for the improvement and spread of primary education of independence were implemented. The major schemes are Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, DPEP, Operation Black Board and Middle day Meal Scheme. The middle day meal scheme was inaugurated from 15 August 1995. The objective of starting the program in the early stages was to increase enrolment, retention and attendance as well as to improve nutrition levels in children. But despite almost 30 years of implementation of the Mid-Day Meal programme, there has been an improvement in student enrollment and retention, but there is still a need for relative improvement in student’s class attendance and their nutritional level.
