  5. 5. Objectives 1. To improve the nutritional and health status of children in the age-group 0-6 years; 2. To lay the foundation for proper psychological, physical and social development of the child; 3. To reduce the incidence of mortality, morbidity, malnutrition and school dropout;

  11. 11. Funding Pattern • Prior to 2005-06, providing of supplementary nutrition was the responsibility of the States and administrative cost was provided by the Government of India as 100% central assistance. • The nutrition costs were meager and coverage of the programme in all villages/habitations was also limited and not universal.
  12. 12. Funding Pattern • Since many States were not providing adequate supplementary nutrition in view of resource constraints, it was decided in 2005-06 to support the States/UTs up to 50% of the financial norms or to support 50% of expenditure incurred by them on supplementary nutrition, whichever is less. • Since 2009- 10, Government of India has modified the sharing pattern of the ICDS Scheme between the Centre and States.
  13. 13. Funding Pattern • The sharing pattern of supplementary nutrition in respect of North Eastern States between Centre and States has been changed from 50:50 to 90:10 ratios. • In respect of other States/UTs, the existing sharing pattern in respect of supplementary nutrition is 50:50. • The existing cost sharing ratio for other components is 90:10 except the new components approved under Strengthening & Restructuring for which it is 75:25 (90:10 for NER).
