Curious about Direct Benefit Transfer

Can I avail DBT benefits even if I don't have an Aadhaar card?

No, having an Aadhaar card is typically a requirement for availing DBT benefits. Aadhaar serves as a unique identification number that helps in accurately identifying and targeting beneficiaries for various government subsidies and schemes. The linkage of Aadhaar with bank accounts enables direct transfer of funds to the beneficiaries.

However, in some cases, alternate identification documents may be accepted for availing DBT benefits in the absence of an Aadhaar card. The specific rules and provisions may vary depending on the scheme or subsidy. It is advisable to check the eligibility criteria and requirements specified for each individual program to understand the alternatives available for Aadhaar linkage.
