Direct Benefit Transfer - India

  1. 1. A Study on Direct Benefit Transfer Nithin Venugopal Research Scholar St.Thomas College, Kozhencherry.
  2. 2. Delivery of financial services at an affordable cost for the under privileged and low income groups to improve and achieve social inclusion. The biggest step towards financial inclusion in recent periods is Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme (DBT).
  3. 3. What? Transfer of benefits directly to beneficiary’s account. When? The scheme is operational from January 1st 2013. Why? To generate budget savings & reduce leakages, corruption, eliminate middlemen, speed up transfer of benefits to the deserved. How? With the help of a biometric Aadhaar linked bank account.
  4. 4. Subsidies Pensions Scholarships MGNREGS Wages, etc.
  5. 5. Amount Transferred to Poor Re.1. Amount Expended for such transfer Rs.3.65
  6. 6. Only 400m aadhaars has been issued which leaves 800m to be issued before April 2014. According to Dy.Gov of RBI only 40% of Indians have bank account. About 188000 villages had banking connectivity as on Jun’2012 whereas India has 700000 villages. For those who don’t have access to bank branches will have to depend on ‘Banking Correspondents’ or ‘BCs’ Currently BCs cover only 70000 villages which require a further 10 fold expansion.
  7. 7. The major hurdle involved in DBT is identifying the actual beneficiary. Last BPL census was done in 2002. The new list is list would be ready only by 2013 end or in early quarter of 2014. So the major challenge before Govt. is that whether it should use the 2002 list or should it wait for the new one.
