Missing : Old Age Pension

‘None of the village elderly have ever received old age pension in Mahuadhana area of Dobe panchayat, Tamiya block, Chindwara district in Madhya Pradesh.’ Our community correspondent Raju Parteti from the district documented the issue, taking testimonies from all the elderly in village. As per the elders, they have approached the village head a number of times and also went to the pension registration executive but to no avail. Both the secretary and the village head paid no attention to their woes. ‘If the officers of Tamiya Block, representing the government of India, adopt such careless attitude towards its people, then who do we go to? If they don’t perform their duties and help the elderly, then strict action must be taken against them. ‘ Raju demands that all those who haven’t received their old age pension in the community, should get their dues and be benefited by the government scheme that is meant for them. About the Partnership: The Poorest Areas Civil Society (PACS) Programme and Video Volunteers have come together to create the Community Correspondents Network. The videos generated by the network will be able to highlight voices from the margins, providing skills to social communicators to provide advocacy tools to community based organisations.
