To begin with, Ambala and Karnal district will be covered under this scheme, an official spokesperson said here today.
Besides, it will be ensured that the only fortified edible oil is available in the open market through HAFED from November 2018 onward, he said.
The state government has started a pilot project for distribution of fortified wheat flour under PDS in two blocks of Ambala district in March 2017 and also under Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) in June 2017, the spokesperson added.
The scheme will be expanded to the entire state by December this year.
Milk fortification with Vitamin A and D2 was started in all six milk plants in the state in 2016, the official noted.
Fortified edible oil (Cotton-seed and Soybean) is being used in five districts under ICDS namely Yamunanagar, Kurukshetra, Ambala, Karnal and Gurugram, he said.
This will be extended to all remaining districts by September 2018, the spokesperson added.
