'As the government officials write 'father unidentified' in the citizenship certificate of the Badi youth; they complain that the government exploited them in the past and humiliated them at present.' Devika Ghartimagar Jeeva Badi (name changed) required a citizen certificate after her mother passed away the previous year. She had to transfer the land and holdings owned by her mother to her own name.She spent many days visiting the municipality and the district administration office to get her citizen certificate.And, after a long and tiring attempt, she was successful in obtaining the citizenship certificate.
