MHA asks states to transfer amount to affected farmers’ Jan Dhan accounts


  • Utilising Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet scheme, the Jan Dhan Yojna, the home ministry has asked all states to transfer the relief meant for distraught farmers to bank accounts opened under the scheme.
  • A top home ministry official said direct disbursement of the compensation into the farmers’ bank accounts would check pilferage and ensure compensation does reach the affected.
  • He added that the J&K government was also advised to disburse the compensation to the floodstruck people in the state through the Jan Dhan Yojna accounts.
