It is estimated that the total cost of the project will be 277 crores, with each kit worth two thousand rupees.

1kg nutrition mix powder, 1kg dates, 3 bottles of iron syrup, 500gm ghee cup, 200gm Palli patti, and a plastic basket are included in the kit.

Harish Rao expressed gratitude to the chief minister for founding the program and concentrating on maternal and child care. He stated, “KCR kit for newborn baby, Nutrition kit for mother. Nutrition kits will be a boon for pregnant women.”
