Dharampur’s Jai Adivasi Mahasangh Gujarat, Mamlatdar R.K. The application form was sent to Malvish. In the application form, the beneficiaries have not received the amount received in the old age assistance scheme from 2015 and 2016 in Ukta, Titukhadak, Dhamni, Pendha, Pirmal, Moti Koraval, Wanzalat, Dandwal, Bhanwal, Tamchhadi and many other villages of Dharampur. In Ukta village, in October 2015, despite the order of assistance through Form No. 4, they have not yet received the amount of old age assistance.
The benefit of old age assistance was previously available at the area post office. But the scheme has not been disbursed after opening bank accounts from the post office to get old age assistance and most of the banks are located in Dharampur city. And the elderly cannot come to Dharampur to take advantage of this scheme. The lives of the elderly are in danger as they have not received this money for a long time to buy food grains and make a living. So the money of this scheme which has been stopped immediately has been demanded to be deposited in the bank or JET place account.
