RRR centre opened
To enhance the Safaimitra Shivir, a special rupee store has also been established at the Mahila Bhawan, filled with a wide range of items sourced from the RRR (reduce, reuse, and recycle) centre.
With the aim of supporting safaimitras and their families, each Aadhaar card holder can choose two items from the store.
