11 women in Kerala pool money to buy ticket, win Rs 10 crore bumper lottery

News Desk : dhakamirror.com

Eleven municipality women workers from Kerala decided to take part in a lottery. For this, they collected small amounts from their meager income and bought a lottery ticket worth 250 rupees.

When the lottery results were announced they hit the jackpot and won Rs 10 crore.

The women are members of Haritha Karma Sena, a green army under the Parappanangadi Municipality. They are responsible for collecting waste from households and segregating the non-biodegradable waste.

A few weeks ago, eleven of them pooled in Rs 250 to buy the lottery ticket, but little did they know that they will hit the jackpot. According to the reports, one of the women even had to loan the money to contribute for the ticket.

In an interview with a news channel, Radha, one of the women who won, revealed, “We all come from very poor families with lots of debt and liabilities. I myself have a debt of ₹3 lakh which I hope to clear with the amount I get from the lottery. So, it has reached us at the right time.”

Ever since the unexpected news came out, the women are thrilled and in disbelief. Radha further said that they had to check with multiple people to confirm the news.

Reportedly, apart from the jackpot money, the lottery also offers multiple prizes ranging from Rs. 10 lakhs, Rs. 5 lakhs, Rs. 3 lakhs, Rs. 1 lakh, and more. The ticket has been submitted to the authorities, and the money will be sent to the winner’s account after tax deduction.
