Govt's fund transfer under DBT scheme touches Rs.858.1 bln till Dec 2017

Disbursal likely to cross Rs.1 tln in FY18

by Arjit Singh Bhambra

With 409 of the total 460 direct benefit transfers (DBT) applicable schemes under its ambit, fund transfers under the DBT have touched Rs.858.1 billion during the first nine months of 2017-18, as per a report in Financial Express. This translates into an increase of about 15 per cent from the DBT transfers made during the entire 2016-17. It is being anticipated that the DBT disbursals might cross Rs.1 trillion in 2017-18. The number of DBT beneficiaries has also doubled to 600 million during April-December 2017 as against the entire financial year of 2016-17. Increase in the number of schemes such as schemes related to textiles, credit-linked subsidy, agri and allied sectors and aggressive Aadhaar seeding with bank accounts in order to plug leakages has also contributed to the rise in the number of beneficiaries and transfers.
