New Delhi, Dec 14 (PTI) Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has asked ministries to take up implementation of direct cash transfer scheme on a "war footing" before the launch of the programme on January 1. It has also asked them to organise camps to fast pace enrolment under Aadhaar for the purpose. Primary activity of all the Ministries implementing schemes in the coming weeks will be to complete enrolment of Aadhaar for all beneficiaries. They also have to ensure the beneficiaries have bank accounts in which Aadhaar numbers will also be mentioned, besides compilation of beneficiary databases. "This has to be addressed on a war footing. The best approach may be a Camp approach," the PMO said in a statement. Centre plans to provide direct cash transfers of benefits in 34 schemes in the selected 51 districts. Also, Planning Commission has been asked to finalise dates for a one-day meeting of the Collectors of the concerned districts (excluding Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh) between December 10-15. "Collectors will need to be given clear instructions on how to do this when they come for the meeting next week. Planning Commission will coordinate the necessary preparations for this," the PMO said. Following the directions of the National Committee on Direct Cash Transfers chaired by the Prime Minister last month, the Executive Committee held a meeting for follow-up action on Direct Cash Transfers. The Committee, chaired by the Principal Secretary in the PMO, discussed in detail the core objective of how direct cash transfers of benefits in the selected 43 districts (excluding, till the end of the election process, 8 districts in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat), will be implemented as per the timelines. The PMO further said banks would also be authorised to be Registrars for Aadhaar numbers and will be enabled to enroll beneficiaries for Aadhaar at the locations where camps are to be held and otherwise as well.
