The Madhu Babu Pension Scheme run by the government of Odisha provides monthly monetary support to widows, elders, and disabled people. With case after case of non-payment emerging, it is evident that the scheme has not been running successfully.
Community Correspondent Ashok Samal reports from Agrahat village, Cuttack district, Odisha on another such failure.
