Recently, an organization called ‘Srijan Mahila Sahyog Samiti’/ ‘Srijan Vikas Sahkari Sahyog Samiti’/ ‘Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti Limited’’., Bhagalpur, Bihar, has been in the news for an alleged scam.
For those who are wondering whether there is any connection between that organization and our Self-Reliant Initiatives through Joint Action (referred to as SRIJAN), we clarify that SRIJAN is in no way connected to or associated with Srijan Mahila Sahyog Samiti’/ ‘Srijan Vikas Sahkari Sahyog Samiti’/ ‘Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti Limited’’., Bhagalpur, Bihar”
