Respected Prime Minister

We thank you for taking many steps to include elderly and persons with disabilities in the national development by taking measures to pass Rights of persons with Disabilities ACT in 2016 and Accessible India campaign.

In India there are around 3 crore persons with disabilities and 12 crore senior citizens and a majority of them live in rural India.

We wish to bring it to kind notice it is nearly impossible for older citizens to walk to ration shops ,carry grains back to their remote villages.The distance from ration shop to remote villages can be anywhere from 1 mile to   5 milies.This has resulted in them to depend on others to carry their grains by giving a share of their own grains .Each person get 5 kilos rice per month and this has to be shared by old woman to the person who carries the grains for her because she cannot carry and walk due to old age and disability due to aging.

Therefore we request you to assign this job to either Anganwadi workers,primary school teachers or a local NGO or Village panchayth to deliver the food grains to the door steps of elderly persons and persons with disabilities with bench mark disability.We also suggest to introduce mobile ration shops to reach remote villages.

We look forward to hearing from you with a positive action.

Dr Indumathi Rao

Citizen of India
