Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 1 (PTI) The Kerala government decided on Wednesday to set up a unified information system for the efficient implementation of various social protection schemes and services in the state.
A cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, approved the proposed plan in principle, according to an official statement.
It would be a centralized public platform to identify and select beneficiaries from all government social plans, he said.
As part of this, an “Aadhaar Vault” would be set up in the initial phase by spending Rs 34.32 crore and permission was given to the Rebuild Kerala Initiative to grant administrative approval for the same.
Once social, economic and demographic information is available from a single source, it can be used to select deserving beneficiaries of all public social protection schemes, the statement said.
The cabinet also decided to appoint former Rajya Sabha MP TN Seema as coordinator of the Nava Keralam Mission, a flagship program of the state government, for three years, he added. PTI LGK
