KATHMANDU: Women for Human Rights (WHR) today appreciated the government steps to provide allowance to all single women. The government has dropped the eligible age limit to receive social security allowance this year and has guaranteed that single women will be eligible to receive such allowances from the day they become widows. Earlier, single women aged above 60 years were eligible for the allowance. The budget for the fiscal 2011/12 has pledged concessional loans for single women-operated cooperatives, apart from tax relief for single women.
