Pregnant Women made to pay for free services in Sindri, Jharkhand

Jaccha Baccha card provides women free facilities like vaccinations & medicines among other health care facilities. But in Pakur district's Maheshpur block, women of Sindri village are being made to pay Rs 50 to Rs 100 for procurement of card by the local ANMs. Because of this, many women are unable to get the card thereby being left out from the benefits provided by the government.

Please call the Block Child Development officer of Maheshpur on +91-8294458586 and ask her to make sure that the Jaccha Baccha card is provided free of cost in Sindri, as mandated by the government.
