    Observations of field visit: Since Neelima's father's death in a
    road accident three years ago, the family has been getting a pension
    of Rs.2500 p.m. from her father's employers. They live in a rented
    house. As the pension amount is not sufficient to meet the house
    rent and other household and educational expenses, her maternal
    uncle helps them. Neelima's college (aided) is very good and it
    provides regular extra coaching.
