Election Commission clarifies - Grant can't be stopped in the name of Model Code of Conduct

Dear Friends,

This is in response to my earlier post on "Should Rehabilitation Services come to stand still when Model Code of Conduct is in force ?"

I have been informed by Sh. JL Kaul, Secretary General AICB that our communication and the resonance that your efforts created did work very well!

Election Commission of India has directed the Government of India, Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to release grant to NGOs before 31st March and work has already been started.

Mr. Kaul has expressed thanks to all organisations who supported the petition/appeal and also wrote to the Commission directly.

Who says, the reason and strong advoacy doesn't work in India?

Congratulations to the sector and thanks to the Election Commission for their quick and timely resonse.

Warm regards,

Subhash Chandra Vashishth
