Since lockdown, PEC has continued to support the differently-abled community and now we have been supporting people in getting Antyodaya card entitlements. Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY) household’s entitlements are 35 kg of food grain per household per month to continue as before. Wheat and rice are being issued at the scale of 15 kg and 20 kg per family per month at the rate of Rs. 2 and Rs. 3 per kg respectively.
PEC’s Usmanbhai also supported in submitting an application with each individual’s details for Antyodaya card along with relevant and required evidence to check on their status. In total, 50 applications were submitted and followed up.
In addition, Childline’s Komal video training was attended by a small group of people about the issues of CSA along with a questionnaire.
