As part of initiative of Ministry of Rural Development to enable social welfare schemes to be paid directly into Aadhaar linked bank accounts of MGNREGA beneficiaries, Rural Development (RD) block Chumukedima conducted a training on sensitization on Aadhaar seeding for village functionaries under RD Block Chumukedima on June 10, at BDO’s office Chumukedima.
Lead Bank, SBI, Regional Business Office Dimapur chief Manager, S. Besu Bosco, and SBI Chumukedima, branch manager, Temsurenla Jamir, spoke at the training and distributed forms for linking of Aadhaar/UID number with the account of the beneficiaries and also consent forms.
Bank officials also highlighted the process of opening of bank account and the documents required for opening of account for those beneficiaries who do not have bank account. They further urged the village functionaries not to look for temporary solution but for permanent solution.
Highlighting the importance of Aadhaar Seeding, DRDA Dimapur, assistant project coordinator, Imkong Phom, urged all MGNREGA job card holders to apply for Aadhaar card registration since only those who have their Aadhaar card seeded to their MGNREGA job card would receive money.

Earlier the programme was chaired by RD Block Chumukedima, SO, Tiatoshi Jamir, keynote address was delivered by Block Development Officer, Chumukedima K. Yamao Konyak and later vote of thanks was delivered by RD Block Chumukedima, BAPO Imtizulu.
