Video Volunteers community correspondent Anil Kumar Saroj has been working with marginalised communities for a very long time now. In this episode of Fixing India, we see how he helped Ramlal, a man belonging to the musahar community from Uttar Pradesh receive compensation.
The road towards receiving the compensation amounting to about 8 lakhs towards relief and rehabilitation of Ramlal wasn't an easy one.
