He directed the BDOs to have a detailed database at panchayat level regarding beneficiaries so that the same could be available at a click of a button.

Chief Minister said that in the first phase the State Government has decided that beneficiaries of schemes such as Ayushman Bharat and HIMCARE, Ujjawala yojna and Grihini Suvidha Yojna, housing schemes like Pradhan Mantri Aawas Yojna, Mukhyamantri Aawas Yojna, workers registered with Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board, ASHA workers, Pradhan Mantri Kissan Samman Nidhi, Social Security Pension beneficiaries, Sahara Yojna, Jan Dhan Yojna etc.

Chief Minister said that display panels should be installed in each panchayat so that video conference being held by him could be displayed to the general public.

Chief Secretary Anil Khachi said that one can take help of Aadhar number of the beneficiaries as most of these schemes are DBT basis. He said that although there was no need of any e-pass, but still registration is required for entering the State.
