  1. My wife pregnancy confirmed on march 2020 & we registered for PICME. After 5 months we got amma kit. Now my wife delivery was done on Egmore government hospital on November 2020. Now we are asking for another kit, but our anganwadi sister is saying that only one time we will give. But in this scheme government is giving 2 kits for pregnant ladies. And also that 14,000 amount also not came to my wife account. She is cheating with that 1 kit. For this what i have to do and where i have to raise complaint. Please guide me friends.
