Maharashtra is first State to pay salary through Aadhaar seeded bank accounts
Maharashtra became the first state in the country to disburse salary of its staff through their Aadhaar linked bank accounts. The employees of the state government’s Information Technology (IT) department got their July 2013 salaries through their Aadhaar linked bank accounts.
Maharashtra State Government has decided to use the Aadhaar Payment Bridge (APB) system for all Mantralaya employees. This initiative would help in speedy transfer of salaries and also ensure the transfer to the actual beneficiary at a later stage.
UID for faster Salary:
Maharashtra State Government initiated a program “UID for faster Salary” for its employees in the state. The aim is to process salaries only for those employees, who are enrolled under Aadhaar program.
