Can DBT be used for private sector subsidies?

DBT is predominantly used for delivering welfare schemes and subsidies offered by the central and state governments.

However, it is worth noting that DBT has been lauded for its potential to improve subsidy delivery in various sectors, including the private sector. In the future, there may be possibilities for expanding the scope of DBT to include subsidies and benefits provided by private entities or industries. The decision to implement DBT for private sector subsidies would depend on government policies, regulatory frameworks, and the willingness of private entities to adopt DBT as a means of disbursing subsidies.

It's essential to stay updated with the latest government announcements and initiatives to know if there have been any developments regarding the expansion of DBT to include private sector subsidies.
