Communities where populations does manual labour (like farmers) prints are not clear.

Important Asset in Cash Transfer Process.
Further presentation on Successes and Challenges from:
Hello Paisa
Siddharth Bank

Social Protection Processes to work


ICT and Manual logistic processes need to work in COHESION.
Specially in remote districts with difficult terrain and sparse population.

Real life example on how this is being achieved will be presented later
by Hello Paisa and Siddhartha Bank.

Recommendations for DoCR MIS


IT Division of the DoCR
Needs to be Expanded and uplifted.

Public Portal
Needs to be more user friendly
Due to prior security lapse - Public Trust needs to be brought back.

75 Districts
All 75 districts need to be incorporated in the system
A process system needs to be set up for data consistency and accuracy

Reporting Tools
Social Security tools need to be created for management and monitoring. E.g
Payments can be tallied with death rates over a period of time.

Recommendations for DoCR MIS


Smart Phone Technology

Referring to the Telecom Statistics


Mobile Internet Users Subscription data - 11,782,404 which is over
97.00% of 12,091,787
Should learn to exploit Mobile Internet services more in the future

Grievance Systems
Existing system needs to be improved and widened with incorporation of
phone complaints, sms, online forms etc.

System integration with other Govt. dbs as per GON


architecture
DoCR IT Team
Need for Capacity building
Expansion and upliftment

RECOMMENDATION Regulatory Reform


CASH TRANSFER Using mobile phones are most
successful and popular in countries where
Telecommunication Companies have been brought into
the foray.
Reform needs to happen allowing certain banking
transaction to happen via MOBILE Phone Accounts.
