Under government schemes Jagotibai is eligible to get a widow pension each month to help her with the expenses of her house.
For 10 years she hasn't received any money. VV-PACS Community Correspondent Raju Parteti reports on the issue.
Ghatlingam village is home to many other women like Jagotibai. In the absence of any monetary assistance they continue to work hard. Jagotibai for instance, goes each morning to pick berries off a tree which she sells in the market. These are also her staple diet.
Don't you think easing off her tension to earn her daily bread would be a big help to Jagoti? Pick up your phone to reach her voice to the authorities.
Call to Action
: Please call the Chief Officer of Tamiya Block on 07149272303 and ask him to ensure that Jagotibai and the other women in the village get their pensions
