192 - Delivering Social Welfare At The Last Mile | Aniket Doegar | #LongIndia | Bharatvaarta Last mile delivery is one of the biggest problems of India. Due to the scale of required operations, the last mile is usually close to unreachable with the resources that the government has. Even though the government undertakes many social welfare programmes, these fail to make an impact on the ground, where they are the most needed. 
This is where companies like Haqdarshak come in. They provide an agent-based welfare scheme linkage at the last mile. By using assisted tech and linking schemes to those who need it, they make sure that the social welfare programmes reach to those who need it the most. 
Today we have guest Aniket Doegar, the Co-Founder & CEO, Haqdarshak, an organization using tech to ensure last mile delivery of social welfare schemes. He was also featured in Forbes 30 under 30 Asia and is a graduate from Stanford University School of Business.
