- The project to distribute ‘’Maitri” cups was announced in the Budget and has been launched as a pilot programme in Chamarajanagar and Dakshina Kannada and would be extended to all districts in due course
Why this project?
The menstruation cups are reckoned to be more environmental friendly than the sanitary napkins as the former can be reused for many years while the latter has to be disposed off
