Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh today said as the pace of the just laid out direct cash transfer scheme depended on speedy enrolment of Aadhaar he would talk to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to speed up things.

"The direct cash transfer scheme is related to Aadhaar numbers. And in some districts the enrolment process is slow. I will speak to the UIDAI authorities," Ramesh, who ended his three-day visit of Maoist-affected Latehar, Palamau and Garhwa districts covering to and from Ranchi about 700 km, said.

Praising Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda for his desire to see inclusion of four of his districts under the scheme, the Union Rural Development minister said Aadhaar enrolment should pick up.

Emphasising on devolution of powers to provide teeth to the rural bodies, Ramesh expressed surprise as he heard two varying versions on the issue.

"On one hand some departments in Jharkhand say they have devolved powers to the panchayat bodies while on the other the people at the grassroots claim they are yet to get power," Ramesh said.

Sharing experience on his bumpy ride on the NH-75, Ramesh said, funds were released and the state had already appointed a contractor.

"But I have not seen worse road than NH-75 while travelling from Ranchi to Garwha," he said.

Though he gave credit to the state for constructing about 79,000 dug-wells across the state, Ramesh said, "the huge number of dug-wells have been there because of MG-NREGA programme, which helped farmers."
