Government mulls direct cash transfers by dropping money bags from the sky

Mar 3, 2011 Comments

Government claims that dropping money bags solves the problem of identifying the eligible BPL households for cash transfers, which could otherwise take several months under the AADDHAR program of Unique Identification Authority of India. The step is further claimed as being “self-selecting” as it automatically excluded many “non-deserving” segments of society, such as the salaried classes, which is constrained from going out in search of bags.
