With an aim towards making unemployed women self-reliant, the New Delhi Municipal Council has launched a unit where they will be given training to prepare quality food products and then sell it through a tiffin service. Announced in April this year, the project was implemented last week with the setting up of a canteen, ‘Urja’, at Gole Market here.
