Dikshit said out of 34 schemes launched by the central government for direct cash transfer, only nine are relevant in Delhi.
She said Delhi has already implemented this scheme for its Annashri Yojna in which a cash subsidy of Rs.600 is provided to vulnerable households.
"It will eliminate chances of any delay and irregularities in delivery of the benefits to the needy. It also overcomes duplication of beneficiaries," said Dikshit.
"Two of these schemes are meant for women and the idea is to empower them by allowing direct cash transfer," said Vandana Jena, senior advisor planning commission.
"The beneficiaries of four schemes — post-matric scholarship for SC, post-matric scholarship for OBC, Indira Gandhi Matritava Sahyog Yojna and Janani Suraksha Yojna — have been brought under a system which eliminates chances of corruption and bogus beneficiaries," added Dikshit.
