FLAWED SCHEME Ramkali, 55, a Gond woman from Chandragarh village in Dindori district of Madhya Pradesh, cooks on a chulha or clay oven despite being a beneficiary of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, the current government's welfare scheme which aims at providing 50 million connections to women from families below the poverty line. Ramkali's cylinder has been lying in one corner of the kitchen for the past three months as it has been exhausted. She is not refilling as it is expensive. She will need at least `800 to refill the cylinder besides `160 for going to and returning from Dindori town, where a refilling facility is available. Instead, she can readily get firewood from the jungle for free and light her chulha, no matter how polluting it is. However, she agrees that an connection is a cleaner option and would have used it if it were not for the constraints.
