  • There is improper categorization and rehabilitation package designed is insufficient for their livelihoods. Furthermore, whatever the rehabilitation package is designed still having slow pace in implementation
  • The rehabilitation modality is still not clear, thus, freed Haliyas have not yet fully realized the true sense of freedom
  • Due to absence of local elected body, different social structures (both government and non government) are directly influenced by misuse of political powers that has directly hampered in local initiation for rehabilitation of freed Haliyas
