Direct cash transfer to Women PMJDY account holders
We are aware that the Govt. has announced Relief Package of Rs.1.70 lakh crore for Women PMJDY account holders; poor senior citizens; poor widows; poor disabled persons etc. in the wake of outbreak of Covid-19. We all understand that most of the 24 crore beneficiaries will receive their allotted monies through bank accounts. We apprehend that there will be huge rush in many of the branches for withdrawal in the coming days. The Ministry of Finance staggered the arrival of account holders by scheduling disbursement as per account numbers of the beneficiaries.
We have written a letter to the Secretary (Financial Services), Ministry of Finance today in this regard. Text of the letter is appended below. We advice our Units and affiliates to remain vigil and also to intervene in case
