Some days back a disappointed poor old 8th passed widow came to me with a case to seek guidance for the release of money borrowed from her close relative which the spent on the construction of toilet on the assurance of RDD grass root level functionary that after construction of the toilet, Government will release the amount.
I found her case incomplete in many aspects. I found her affidavit not properly filled up and also unattested. No Serial No of the baseline survey in the main application form, no signatures of Village Sanitation Committee, no signature of JE, no signature of Inspector and no self attestation on the attached documents.
For this work, this poor lady met VLW twice, visited BDO office one time and saw Sarpanch once. BDO office did not take her case for want of one formality. But there were also above said deficiencies in the case. Those were not pointed out by any person and she was compelled to run from pillar to post by the RDD.
Her money lender is pressing hard her to repay the loan. Under such circumstances, the poor widows of the State probably are constructing the toilets to make the PM’s dream of Clean India.
It is a painful scenario which prompt us to provide single window service to the people of the State. Why should we make the beneficiaries to run from pillar to the post to get the benefit announced by PM?
