Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Pan­vel: Dis­abled peo­ple have protested against the Pan­vel Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil (PMC) for not spend­ing enough for their de­vel­op­ment. In a rally on Tues­day, dis­abled peo­ple al­leged that though PMC al­lo­cates 3% of its an­nual rev­enue for the de­vel­op­ment of peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, it had not used the fund for the last three fi­nan­cial years. Vishnu Dhakr, a leader of Pra­har Apang Kriti (PAK) that or­gan­ised the protest said, “In 201213, PMC had al­lo­cated Rs10 lakh for the dis­abled. It had spent Rs6,56,388. What hap­pened to the re­main­ing Rs3,43,612?” Mangesh Chi­tale, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, PMC said, “Those who have over 40% dis­abil­ity should get them­selves reg­is­tered with us by fol­low­ing the spec­i­fied process. In the cur­rent fi­nan­cial year, we will en­sure that the funds are dis­trib­uted at the ear­li­est.”.
