The Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR), a non-governmental organisation, has approached the Karnataka State Legal Services Authority to streamline the process of issuing these certificates under Sakala.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Roopa K., an accredited social health activist (ASHA) worker, said that she was not able to obtain a rental agreement for 20 days. “However, when we approached a middlemen, we were able to get an agreement within an hour,” she said.
