Election time is earning season for railway
Right now I am in my village- Rohina, Dt. Etah U.P.. Yesterday my
illiterate nephew asked me to fill up an application form for grant of Rs.2
lacs by the Govt in the name of "Beti Padhao Beti Bachao" Scheme for her
daughter. Obviously poor illiterates get easily attracted by the name of
I was stunned whether govt is really distributing so much of money whereas
govt schools have no infrastructure n teachers in U.P.
And the worst is these forms are being sold for Rs.20 each. Imagine if 1
crore forms are sold and huge money being collected by sheer farce of
allurement before elections. Next day when asked the man who brought this
form told me that already 15 lac forms have been deposited thru post
Unable to understand it's efficacy
I tried to send photocopy of the form to CEC but failed on its email.
So opportunities are a galore in Indian system but poor illiterated suffer
at the hands of dishonest n crooks. The system is intentionally left too
porous to exploit.
