Local level scam in Sukhdi distribution programme to pregnant women
Junagadh, 11 May, 2013
Nutritious supplement in the form of traditional Sukhdi sweet was never distributed among pregnant women, but fake bills worth Rs 7,80,000 were created and claimed by Anganwadi workers and sevika. The District Development Officer(DDO) of Junagadh is probing this alleged scam involving Visavadar taluks’s anganwadi schools, on complain received by Anganwadi workers.
Visavadar ICDS branch distributes nutritious Sukhdi sweet to pregnant ladies as nutritious suppliment, but recently allegations were made that Sukhdi sweet was not distributed in last two and half years and bills were generated. Anganwadi women workers alleged that main sevika prompted them to produce fake bills.
During the probe, some instances were uncovered where women who were operated for family planning ten years back were shown as pregnant beneficiary of Sukhdi sweet programme.
ICDS programme officer has received complain in this regard and probe is going on under the supervision of DDO.
