The good quality of the services is an important determinant for acceptance of a programme in a community. It not only enhances the credibility of a worker at the ground level but also generate the demand for the services. In this paper perception for the quality of the services was assessed through the exit interview of the beneficiaries at the Anganwadi centres (AWCs). 200 beneficiaries were included from 20 AWCs in a period of one and half month. 52.5% respondents were dissatisfied for the services provided from the AWC for one or more reason. The most common reason mentioned was the not easy accessibility of the AWC and less space available at the AWC (68.6%), followed by the poor quality of the food distributed (66.7%) and irregular pre school education (57.1%) from AWCs.
