BHAKTAPUR, June 3: The Madhyapur Thimi Municipality has taken a decision to deliver the social security or elderly allowance to the senior citizens at their doorsteps.
Thimi’s Mayor Madan Sundar Shrestha said the decision was taken as the senior citizens were finding it hard to travel to the bank to receive the allowance and to prevent the allowance from falling into the hands of others.
The municipality has already held talks with the bank in regards the distribution of security allowances. The bank’s employees will be delivering the allowance at the senior citizens’ doorsteps.
The municipality has also taken a decision on ending the drinking water problem in the town within six months and providing permits to quake-stricken without ownership document through a recommendation from the ward office to reconstruct their homes.
The quake-stricken will also not be charged any amount when getting their house construction map endorsed. RSS
