Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) migration for all Subsidy Schemes
The Government is planning to first link the bank account details of the beneficiaries. The sourcing and the seeding of the databases with Aadhaar will be done at a later stage.
- This method is expected to expedite the migration of all the subsidy schemes on the DBT platform
- No beneficiary would receive any payment in cash or by cheque after April 30.
- In the first phase, DBT included only 27 schemes which consisted of scholarships and LPG subsidy.
- The focus currently is on digitizing the databases that are maintained on paper registers.
