Considering these orders, the state government has taken a crucial decision. It has been decided to deposit the pension amount directly in the beneficiary’s bank account.

With this decision, the amount will be deposited directly in the beneficiary’s bank account in DBT mode without any involvement of volunteers or secretariat staff. It has been stated that the government will directly deposit the amount in this dbt method to all the beneficiaries whose bank account is linked with Aadhaar and NPCI.
