Thane collector asks officials to provide Maharashtra government scheme benefits to tribal widow | Thane News – Times of India


THANE: Thane district collector Rajesh Narvekar has directed officials of Murbad taluka to immediately extend basic facilities and benefits of government welfare schemes to a poor tribal widow.
The widow, Leena Khandu Mukne (35), suffers from leprosy and resides in a dilapidated hut in the Melhe hamlet of Murbad taluka. The collector’s action came on Sunday after Vivek Pandit, former MLA and chairman of a Maharashtra government-appointed committee on tribal welfare, highlighted her plight in a letter.
“Providing Antyoday ration card (for availing subsidised food grains) and Sanjay Gandhi Yojna (related to financial assistance) subsidy (to the woman) on an immediate basis,” the collector said in a message.
The woman has no ration, Aadhaar or voter ID card and does not get benefits of the government-sponsored welfare schemes.
