Arvind Subramanian, chief economic adviser to the Government of India, today said here that provision of Government services to the common man through Jandhan-Aadhar-Mobile (JAM) model will “generate faith in the Government.”

The Union Government was now making efforts to link JAM to the supply of fertilisers to farmers, he said.

Subramanian today visited some villages in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh to assess the implementation of Aadhar-enabled services like payment of social pensions, distribution of food items under Public Distribution System, payment of wages under MGNREGS, etc.

He was accompanied by UIDAI Deputy Director General Ajay Bhushan Pandey.

Subramanian told reporters that the success of JAM-based services needs collection of data of beneficiaries under various schemes and penetration of Banking Correspondents in the rural areas.

He said that the government was asking the banks to increase the number of Banking Correspondents for this purpose.

Talking about his visit to villages, he said the women in particular expressed satisfaction about receiving benefits of various welfare schemes through JAM.

Andhra Pradesh can become a role model in the implementation of JAM, he said.
