Rally versus lapses in pension distribution
Brushtachar Nirmulan Samajik Sansta members took a rally in Belagavi on Monday to object versus abnormalities in the circulation of old age pensions.
They said that officers of the Revenue Department and Nada Kacheri had actually collected bribes to include over 80,000 disqualified beneficiaries in the list of old age pensioners in the district.
A study by Sakal, a Marathi daily, had actually found a sizeable number of such ineligible recipients in Uchagaon, Kakati, Bagewadi and surrounding villages.
Based Upon this, the sansta had actually submitted Right to Information applications to the Nada Kacheri in Belagavi taluk, but had received no response. Sansta activists stated that this was due to the fact that the profits officers hesitated that sharing the list of recipients and their eligibility status would expose them.
Activists Shivaji Kaganikar and others submitted a memorandum to Deputy Commissioner M.G. Hiremath and sought action versus the officers worried and likewise the disqualified recipients.
