Will you Help Phulabasa Get Her Pension?

Phulabasa Kumbhara, a Dalit widow has not received the state pension she is due for the last 4 years. Community Correspondent Saroj Kumar Suna brings you her story-- another case of the malfunctioning state pension scheme. Phulabasa is eligible for both, the Widow pension scheme as well as the Indira Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme. Each of these would give her between 200/- and 300/- Rupees. But she receives neither. “Sometimes, getting even water for my tea becomes a problem for me”, says Phulbasa. 72 is not an age to stand around in lines, running from one authority to next in order to ask for your entitlements. And yet, Phulbasa finds herself doing just that. Now, tired of battling the state authorities all by herself, she sends you an appeal for support. Call to Action: Please call Mr. Ramesh Chandra Sethi, Social Extension Officer, Paikamal Block on +91 9437376803 and ask him to ensure that Phulabasa Kumbhara receives her pension.
