In view of the effects of possible third wave of Corona pandemic, a large number of citizens gathered at the UCD office run by Vadodara Mahanagar Seva Sadan to get a loan of Rs 10,000 given to urban hawkers under the Pradhan Mantri Swanidhi Yojana. The beneficiaries were outraged as they have to wait for long to get their forms and put allegations on the system for mismanagement.

Beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Swanidhi Yojana in large numbers early in the morning on Thursday to avail the benefit of Rs 10,000. This has led to long queues at the main road outside the UCD office situated in Salatwada area. There is a risk of transition and people were outraged in absence of any security guard or any other arrangement is provided by the UCD office bearer.

"The beneficiaries are coming every day to avail the benefits of Pradhan Mantri Nidhi Yojana. But, the system does not give a satisfactory answer even during assigning the tokens. Standing from early in the morning they are not getting any satisfactory answers from the office bearers," said Shailesh Bhai one of the beneficiary.

UCD project officer Krishna Solanki said that at present, forms are being filled for a loan of Rs 10,000 under the Prime Minister's Street Vendor Atmanirbhar Nidhi Yojana. Apart from this, the beneficiaries who have repaid the loan taken earlier, are being given loan forms of Rs. 20,000.
