Administrative Apathy Delays Pensions

For his entire life, Kashiram worked as a wage labour to earn a living for his family. Now in their old age, he and his wife are struggling to eke out a living for themselves. VV-PACS Community Correspondent Raju Parteti reports from Patalkot, Madhya Pradesh.

As his wife has gone blind and deaf, Kashiram does all the household chores himself. The government sponsored old-age pension scheme would have helped the couple but administrative apathy means they don't receive it.

The village head on being questioned, reveals that she has followed up on the case but herself is unsure when the process will start.

Call to Action: Please call Mr Mahavir Jain the Chief Executive Officer on 07149272303 and ask him to ensure that people get their pensions.
