Handicapped mother Jashobanti (27), village Sarlakani, of Sambalpur district could not avail the benefits of Janani Suraksha Scheme.
She is handicapped since last 3 years. Her limbs are not capable of work load. Doctors were saying she is diagnosed with rheumatism. She needs Rs 500 per week for her medicines. But her husband is a daily labour and not capable. She has stopped medicine since last 3 years.
She gave birth to a baby boy on 24th July 2015 in the town hospital. But she could not avail the benefits under government’s Janani Suraksha Yojana yet. She also has not avail Ration Card, or any allowances. She is living with her husband at Sarlakani since last 5 years.
Further, they visited the collector office. There someone suggested them to open bank account and produce handicap certificate. She creeps to move but the government help and scheme has not reached to her yet.
Though someone is needy and helpless but ironically, the government scheme cannot be avail without any identity card.
