Women, Nimaj, Rajasthan, India. If anyone here could translate the painted sign next to the door I'd be very grateful.

Nice image.
Regarding the signage, I am not a native Rajasthani language speaker and my Hindi is also not as good as it used to be.  Also hard to read - not very sharp on the picture.  But I'll give it a try.

Let's see -

Going from the bottom:

"Varsh" - 2002 = Year 2002

Next up - seems to be some sort of serial number ("Kramank" = number)

Next up - BPL "Parivaar" = BPL Family

Next up - "Rd" and some numbers - not sure what that is, may be street address?

Next up - "Vrada" Pension 750?  Some sort of Pension the occupier of the house is getting?  Rs 750/month? 

Can't really figure out the top 2 items.

Best I can do... :)

:Niranjan.

Edit:  I missed one - above BPL...  it says "Aayu" 75 = Age 75

Thanks for the comments guys, appreciated.

Niranjan, thanks very much for the translation. I've now had two forum contributors translating the sign into English and are both in agreement.

Cheers all

Keith

To add to Niranjan's comment -

The very first line says Griha Nimaaj = Abode in Nimaaj.
Second line is not very clear. Most likely gives the names of the sub-district and ward.

you have succeeded in conveying the glitz and squalor of the slums.
