Direct cash transfer pilots ride to success on Aadhaar
Aadhaar seeding is a process by which Unique Identification (UIDs) numbers of residents are included in the database of service providers for authentication during service delivery. The rural development ministry has already integrated the 12-digit Aadhaar number in digitised NREGA cards.
In fact, the authority has developed an in-house seeding tool called Ginger for the seeding process which involves data extraction, consolidation, normalisation and matching.
In Tripura, gram panchayats have completed seeding Aadhaar number into the RoR (Register of Ordinary Residents) database so that welfare programmes targeting rural population get priority.
In Maharashtra’s Wardha district, Aadhaar enrolment has reached more than 80% and the state is in the process of issuing guidelines on incentives to ASHA and Anganwadi workers for helping women members of the household in opening bank accounts by giving Rs 10 per bank account opened.
