    DIGITAL LITERACY PROGRESS

    • "You would be glad to know that in 2015-16, over Rs. 61,000 crore was distributed to 30 crore plus beneficiaries via Direct Benefit Transfer. 1.6 crore bogus ration cards were deleted by weeding out duplicate beneficiaries, causing savings of about Rs.10,000 crore."
      - Shri. Narendra Modi, Honourable Prime Minister of India

    Benefits: Biometric identification process removes the loopholes of fake documents. It enables direct transfer of Government benefits to the under-banked areas. It also makes banking services like fund transfer more convenient since only Aadhaar number is needed instead of details like IFSC code, account number, etc.
