In order to inform the members of the Chandigarh Territorial Youth Congress (CTYC) about the direct cash transfer scheme started by the UPA government, a meeting was held at Congress Bhawan, Sector 35, on Thursday.
Addressing the gathering Vivek Kumar, observer-cum- scheme incharge in Chandigarh, said that the Youth Congress delegates and workers should inform every citizen of Chandigarh about the scheme, especially people residing in slums. He said that teams would be set up in every ward to make people aware, so that they mentioned their bank account numbers on their Aadhaar Card to avail the benefits of the scheme. The money will be transferred to their accounts.
Former president of CTYC Gurpreet Gabi said duplication would be practically eliminated. The subsidy amount will be transferred to beneficiaries' bank accounts linked to Aadhaar cards. Aadhaar, a 12-digit number, serves as a proof of identity and address anywhere in the country.
