Cash assistance to 20 crore women today

Cash assistance to 20 crore women today

Amid the nationwide lockdown caused by the Corona virus, the money for the Prime Minister's Poor Welfare Package will start flowing into the accounts of women with Jandhan accounts from Friday. The account holder can withdraw rupee at any time as per his wish and requirement. However, the Indian Banks Association (IBA) has appealed for social discrimination to be taken into account.

Keeping in view the social distance, the IBA said that the congestion in the banks will not increase, for which different days have been fixed according to the account number. The government had announced a transfer of Rs 500 per month to the women's account under the Prime Minister's Poor Welfare Package for the next three months to provide financial assistance. This will benefit about 200 million women with public accounts. The last digit of the account number of Jandhan Mahila account holders is 0 or 1, the rupee will come in their account on 3rd April. So, the figure will be 2 or 3 at the end of the account and the rupee will be deposited in the account of the account holder on April 4. According to the IBA, the last digit of the beneficiary's account number is 4 or 5, the rupee will be credited to their account on April 7.

So the last digit of the account number of the account holders is 6 or 7, the second will be credited to their account on 8th April and the last number of 8 or 9 will be credited to their account on 9th April.
The IB said that after April 9, such beneficiaries will be able to withdraw their money at any time. The bank has clarified that the beneficiary can also withdraw money from ATMs, bank friends, customer service centers etc. through posh machines. As per the announcement of the Finance Minister, no charge will be levied on transactions from any ATM till June 30.



Farmers will also benefit soon
In addition, banks are also looking at the beneficiaries of the PM-Kisan scheme. Under this, Rs 2,000 is being given in the form of first installment. The scheme provides Rs 6,000 in three installments a year. Banks have been asked to provide Rs 1,000 crore to the accounts of 3 crore poor widow pension beneficiaries and poor disabled persons in the next 3 months.
