A decision was taken in the meeting of the National Committee on Direct Cash Transfer held by Hon'ble Prime Minister that Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) will be rolled out from 1 January 2013 in 43 identified districts. The purpose of Direct Benefits Transfer is to ensure that benefits go to individuals' bank accounts electronically, minimising tiers involved in fund flow thereby reducing delay in payment, ensuring accurate targeting of the beneficiary and curbing pilferage and duplication. 28 schemes were identified for DBT rollout in 43 identified districts from 1.1.2013. It was further decided that future benefits under all the 28 schemes would be transferred in the following phased manner - (a) in 20 of the 43 districts, from 1.1.2013 (b) in 11 of the 43 districts after 1.2.2013, and (c) in the remaining 12 of the 43 districts after 1.3.2013.
