The quality of the food is good but Mumbaikars are requesting the authorities to extend the two-hour time. According to the officials, even though the customer will have to pay just ₹10 per thali, the actual cost of the food will be ₹50 each in urban centres and ₹35 in rural areas. The balance amount will be given as grant to the district collectorate.  

Notably, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and Cabinet Minsiter Chhagan Bhujbal have launched the scheme in Pune and Nashik respectively.
