"On launch of Aadhar Enabled Direct Cash Transfer on January 1 by the Union Government, Delhi implemented four out of nine centrally sponsored schemes on this mode in its two districts North West and North East," she said.

Suggesting inclusion of Aadhar numbers on university degrees and birth certificates, the Chief Minister exhorted the departments concerned to work on this direction.

The unique identification is a revolutionary method to overcome bogus beneficiaries and duplication," she said.
