The Assam Cabinet on Wednesday decided to provide three eggs to each eligible child in a week in the mid-day meal of schools in tea garden areas under the Prime Minister's Poshan programme. Eggs being a good source of high-quality protein will boost physical growth while countering the adverse effects of malnutrition, Education Minister Ranoj Pegusaid at the media briefing after the Cabinet meeting.  ''This will have a positive impact on increasing the attendance and retention of children in schools and decreasing the dropout rate,'' Pegu said. The cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, also decided to increase the reservation for Other Backward Castes (OBCs) and Minorities and Other Backward Castes (MOBCs) from the existing 15 per cent to 27 per cent in the institutions of higher education, he said.  The cabinet also approved in principle the 'Suga to Durgam' scheme for better citizen-centric governance and service delivery. According to the scheme, every government employee has to work for a period of three to five years during the course of their service in certain geographical areas designated as 'Durgam' (difficult) areas, the minister said.
