The government’s ambitious direct cash transfer programme was rolled out in two districts of Delhi on Tuesday with only four out of 26 identified schemes being covered. Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit launched the centrally-sponsored Aadhaar-enabled direct cash transfer scheme being implemented in North West and North East districts.

Around 12,000 beneficiaries of four schemes – post-matric scholarship for SC, post-matric scholarship for OBC, Indira Gandhi Matritava Sahyog Yojna and Janani Suraksha Yojna – have been brought under the new programme.
