Voice for basic need villagers of Hingoli

In today’s world, shelter is a basic requirement for humans. People who are without shelter, owning a house bring a change in their life. With a view to meet the housing need for poor families, Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY) was initiated by the Government. Under this scheme the family belonging to below poverty line will get money to build the roof for their houses.

Beside many schemes, its purposes are flawed by corruption at multiple levels. In this video, Community Correspondent Radhika Chicholokar reports from Aunda village of Hungol District, Maharashtra focused on the case of Kusabai Khandagale.A widow, mother of five children, four girls and one boy, who is a labour, Kusabai Khandagale got a BPL card and registered under the IAY scheme with sarpanch (village council leader ), but still she is not getting her grant under this scheme.She made all the efforts to get the grant. In the process, the officials demanded bribe to grant money under the scheme. Moreover, she and victims like her in their village approached DRDA.

Vasantrao, Aundha Sarpanch says, 200 people have already registered under DRDA who don’t have house. He also says that they have forwarded the list to the office but waiting for the approval from the DRDA office.

It’s high time to make her voice heard and get her house.

Call to Action: DRDA officer of Hungol District on 024560223761 and ask him to grant the scheme of Kusabai Khandagale so that she will get her house.
