The Rajasthan government has decided to link 10 key schemes to the Aadhaar unique identification programme as part of its larger thrust on e-Governance to ensure fast delivery of services with transparency and accountability.

The 10-key schemes include old-age, widow and differently-abled pension schemes, rural job cards, ration cards, driving license, property registration, water and electricity connections, Indira Awas Yojna and student scholarships.

“The use of information technology will bring transparency in work and stop corruption. Accordingly, Aadhaar enabled service delivery system would be implemented in a phased manner across the state,” Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said in a statement.

Besides, the government has also decided to launch pilot projects to link the delivery of public distribution with Aadhaar cards in Dudu, Chomu and Shahpura tehsils of the state.

To help implement these ambitious schemes, the Chief MInister has asked all state departments to spend three percent of their allotted budget on e-Governance, apart from establishing 750 posts to strengthen the Information Technology Department.
