  1. These Indira Canteens are designed with a concept to cater to the extremely poor people and therefore only the poor should be allowed, and not the Private Bus Drivers who earn Rs/1000.- a day and the Rick drivers who make Rs.1000.- a day, and all the others who can very well afford to eat in Restaurants.

    A fool-proof system should be incorporated and implemented to restrict abuse of such a thoughtful scheme for benefit of the poor.
