Ranchi, June 24 (IANS) A Mobile Kitchen will be launched in Jharkhand from November which will provide lunch at Rs 5, a senior official said on Friday.
The Mobile Kitchen, which will move in a vehicle, would be launched in six districts — Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Hazaribagh, Bokaro, Deoghar and Dhanbad, said Vinay Kumar Chaubey, Jharkhand Food, Civil and Supply department secretary in a press conference here.
