Ward chair Oli informed that social security allowance of three months (Magh, Falgun and Chaitra) was distributed to 144 members of 40 Raute families. Rs 4,000 each was provided to the nomadic Raute community members.
Raute community people are normally residing in and around Dailekh, Surkhet, Salyan and Jajarkot districts of Karnali province. Most of them have been residing in Dailekh.
The federal government has been distributing social security allowance to the Raute people through Gurans Municipality-8 since 2017.
