Ground Report: Transforming Medak district through Ujjwala Yojana

Medak district of Telangana is one of the most backward districts of the state. The literacy rate is really low and poverty rate is high.

Agriculture is the major source of livelihood but water scarcity makes agricultural highly vulnerable.

Cooking was another difficult task for them. Till recently they were disproportionately affected by the indoor air pollution caused by the use of solid fuels and traditional stoves. Ujjwala scheme is a blessing in disguise for them.
