DBT scheme to be rolled out in the country:FM

P Chidambaram, Union Finance Minister, on Thursday announced the Union Budget and during his announcement he said that Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme (DBT) will be implemented in the entire country during the term of UPA government. The complete text of his speech on DBT scheme is as:

“The Direct Benefit Transfer scheme has captured the imagination of the people especially the poor. The government is a government of the people, the money is a money belonging to the people. When we say Aapka Paisa Aapke Haath why should anyone oppose it? We have made a modest and cautious beginning on the 1st of January 2013. Nearly 11 lac beneficiaries have received the benefit directly into their bank account. All around us we see the smiles on the faces of the Dalit girls and the tribal boys who have received their scholarships. We see the happiness on the faces of the pregnant women who are assure that government cares for the mother and the child before and after child birth. We are re-doubling our efforts to ensure that the digitized beneficiaries lists are available, that the bank account is opened for each beneficiary and that the bank account is seeded with Aadhaar at due course. I assure the house and the people of India that the DBT scheme will be rolled out throughout the country during the term of UPA government.”
