Vice President terms DBT, JAM as helpful tools for scholarships

Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu on Monday highlighted his government’s various schemes of how it is helping students in scholarships and said the initiatives such as Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) and Jan Aadhaar Money (JAM) are helpful in transferring scholarships, pensions, compensations from the treasury to beneficiaries without pilferage and delays.

"The government's initiatives of DBT and JAM have been helpful in transferring scholarships, pensions, and compensations without delay and pilferage. Whatever the technology advancement we have, must help the humanity," Naidu said while interacting with Officer Trainees of Indian Telecom Service 2015 Batch.

Saying that technology should be used for the betterment of humanity, Naidu stressed that Internet-based services will be free from delays and misuse.

"Technology advancement should lead to online services which are free from delays and misuse. The time has come for us to go online, otherwise, we will remain in line," he said.

The Vice-President said that the future of the nation is "Digital India" and all must equip themselves to meet the aspirations of the people.

He further said the government had taken up many initiatives such as Stand-up India, Start-up India, Digital India, Incubation, and Innovation for the benefit of unemployed youths.

"We must make use of these programmes and prove that we are not job-seekers but the job-givers. The world has become smart and everyone is living in LPG — liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation," he said.

JAM (Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile) refers to the government's initiative to link Jan Dhan accounts, mobile numbers, and Aadhaar Cards of Indians to plug leaks of government subsidies.
