Govt to expand DBT to 147 schemes by next March

The Government planned to double the number of schemes under DBT to 147 by March and had launched pilots for paying subsidy on food, kerosene and fertiliser directly via bank accounts of beneficiaries.

Benefits and subsidies in as many as 74 schemes of 17 government departments and ministries were paid directly to beneficiaries under DBT. The government planned to extend DBT to 147 schemes by March 2017. The government hoped to achieve accurate targeting of beneficiaries, weed out duplication, curb leakages and bring efficiency in delivery process to help control expenditure and bring greater accountability and transparency.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Expand the term DBT 
2. The Government planned to extend DBT to 147 schemes by which month?
