The helpless landless family has two rupees KG rice in the Govt schema card. But there is no financial support for rationing. Previously100 days wage work program was running, but now that is also not running. No one is giving work seeing the extremely malnourished body of the mother.

the daughter Renuka is studying In the ninth grade of Katana High School in the area. If the school is open, then the girl gets a mid-day meal. If the school is closed, then they have to starve all day.
