A R Pappammal, has spent a lifetime in public service. The municipal commissioner of the Manaparai, a town in Tiruchirappalli district of Tamil Nadu, she has only a year of service left until she retires. And she has also dealt with disability nearly all her life having been afflicted with polio as a child.

But none of that is stopping this determined woman from personally making door-to-door calls to the constituents of the municipality encouraging them to pay their tax dues.

For Pappammal, it is a matter of ensuring that she is able to uphold her duty and meet her targets. Since four of the district tax collectors are currently not on duty on account of varied illnesses, the collection for the year has stood at 67%.
