1.

Slums

2.

Rural area

3.

Tribal area

Further, the model schemes should be area specific. Moreover, he said that ICDS worker should be from the same village. It is important that Aanganwadi teachers should be made aware of the all the schemes. 10% of Gram Panchayat budget which should be spent on women and child welfare has not been optimally used. Most often PDS is not accessible.

Tribal women are increasingly anaemic, sickle- cell anaemia. If women are malnourished, so will the children be. Sometimes even, if grains are available, pregnant women are advised not to eat too much because there may be delivery complications since delivery is done at home. Intervention in this regard should be area specific taking in to consideration both availability and culture. In Maharashtra, there is seasonal malnutrition death.

At the end of the session, during question – answer round, various participants raised important concerns regarding the schemes and their implementation such as -
