Nazdeek has been litigating on behalf of five female petitioners from Bhim Nagar – a slum in Delhi – in order for them to receive their maternity cash entitlements. In partnership with iProbono, Nazdeek has filed a contempt petition on behalf of the five petitioners regarding the lack of implementation of Indira Gandhi Matritva Sahyog Yojana (IGMSY) – a maternity cash benefit. The Delhi High Court ruled in favor of the five petitioners who were denied their maternity cash benefits and directed the Government of Delhi to ensure all disbursements are made to the petitioners.
