Survey Results

A substantive number did have bank accounts but due to lack of awareness on their part they were unable to avail the benefits of the Government’s initiative. Particularly abysmal was the fact that some of them did not even know that such a government scheme existed. Our volunteers tried to reduce this information gap by telling them about the initiative and systematically, suggesting ways in which they could fully avail the benefits placed at their disposal.
Here's what we got from the survey!!
