Hopefully, DCT will benefit the poor, who it was alleged did not benefit much from the subsidies! :(. Of course, it’s not going to be a smooth run, but hopefully with time things will get sorted. And hopefully a day will come when there won’t be much need for subsidies………. :)

That’s really tough to believe that the implementation will be a success because the infrastructure required for this is very poor in the country especially when it comes to the rural India. The scheme is based on Aadhar card and till now only 25 crore people have been issued their Aadhaar numbers. I doubt this scheme and don’t think this will actually work for them.

However, digitaised banking will certainly have monumental efffect of the long-term standards of governace of oublic services.Hence, this needs to be taken up by all the citizens, NGOs who work in the area of transperent governance of oublic services.
