Good Practices Followed By Women Welfare Department in Uttar Pradesh – Kamini Ratan Chauhan

    This is an initiative to make the whole process fast and not to involve any in between brokers.

  2. Lokvani centers have been setup so the beneficiary doesn’t have to go far from her location to fill forms regarding specific schemes.

    • Widow Pension
    • Legal justice to women in case of dowry
